ACADEMIC PROFICIENCY
Academic Proficiency Assessment
As previously noted, selection of students for admission into degree programs of study is based on an individual evaluation of each applicant’s capability or potential for successful completion of the program. To assist the institution in academically advising students, assessment of academic proficiency is required for all undergraduate first time applicants and transfer students who have not satisfied the institution’s English/Mathematics requirements. AUD will use the results of this assessment to determine appropriate academic placement and the need for developmental course work. If it is determined that a student does not possess the minimal standards of proficiency in language, reading or mathematics, he or she will be enrolled in the appropriate developmental course.
 
Developmental Studies

Developmental Studies

Developmental studies courses enable the university to accept students (either into mathematics courses or the English or Intensive English Language Program [IELP]) who require academic support to develop basic academic proficiency in the areas of Mathematics and English. Students in the IELP Program have not been accepted into the university as degree candidates.
 
Enrollment in all developmental courses is determined by placement exam scores. Developmental courses carry no university credit; however, these courses will appear on the student’s transcript and will affect the student’s academic progress as highlighted below.
 
“P” is the minimum passing grade in all developmental courses.
 
First year incoming students who are placed into Developmental courses (ENGL 100, MATH 090, MATH 100, UNIV 100) must matriculate as follows:
 
  • In the first semester, students can register five courses: UNIV100, ENGL 100 and/or the appropriate MATH level + other courses from a pre-approved list;
 
  • Students are required to register and successfully complete all developmental courses (ENGL 100, MATH 090, MATH 100, UNIV 100) within three registered terms including that of initial registration and no more than two academic years;
 
  • Students who fail to successfully complete all their developmental courses within three terms, will be limited to only those developmental courses the next term in which they are enrolled, and may not register for any new courses for-credit;
 
  • The maximum number of attempts for any of these developmental courses is three;
 
  • Failure to successfully complete these courses within the above stated time frames and regulations will result in dismissal from the university.

Intensive English Courses (IELP)
Descriptions for the following Developmental English courses (non-credit) are listed under the section of this Catalog entitled “Center for English Proficiency Program” (pp. 164-167):
IELP 096 Basic Intensive English
IELP 097 Low Intermediate Intensive English
IELP 098 High Intermediate Intensive English
IELP 099 Advanced Intensive English
ENGL 100

Students accepted into the university as degree candidates, but who do not achieve a sufficiently high score on the ACCUPLACER™ or another internationally-recognized exam are placed in ENGL 100. This is a non-credit course. Advancement into ENGL 101 requires passing ENGL 100.

ENGL 100 | DEVELOPMENTAL ENGLISH
Prerequisite: placement by ACCUPLACER™ or other internationally-recognized exam | F, S, SI, SII
The last of the five non-credit English courses, ENGL 100 prepares students for university level English classes. It focuses heavily on mastering basic writing skills - creating a thesis statement, providing specific and relevant support, using transitions and other paragraphing conventions and proofreading for accuracy in spelling, grammar and punctuation. Students in ENGL 100 may take three or four other courses concurrently with ENGL 100 as per the sequence set by each Department.

COMP 101 | Introduction to Computers
This course develops students’ skills and critical thinking abilities that will enable them to understand computers and computer technology, trouble shoot problems, and improve their understanding of Information Technology applications in many career paths. This course builds a foundation for success in computer applications by introducing students to fundamental technology concepts such as Internet services and architecture, Data Security, Database Management System, and giving students essential computer skills.
