VCOM College Catalog and Student Handbook

Course Remediation Students are required to pass all courses in each block in order to progress to the next block. Students must pass each course with a C (70%) or better. A final course grade of less than 70% will normally require remediation of all of the course material during the one-week period provided between blocks. If the course has multiple components (i.e. lecture and laboratory), the student must receive a grade of 70% or greater in the overall course and in each component. If the final course grade is collectively 70% or greater but includes a grade of less than 70% in any of the components, the failed component must be remediated to pass the course. A single, comprehensive written or practical exam covering the material of the overall course or the entire component from the course will be administered during this week and must be completed prior to the first class of the next Block. In the case of having to remediate the overall course, if the student successfully completes the remediation exam with a 70% or higher score, they will receive a 70% for the final course grade. The remediated grade will not be higher than 70%, regardless of the exam score achieved. If the student receives less than 70% on the remediation exam, they will receive an “F” grade for the course and be referred to the Promotion Board. The numeric remediation exam grade is not reported to the student, instead, students will be notified either of a Pass or Fail. In addition, remediation exam are not released or reviewed, and students do not have the ability to challenge questions. In the case of having to remediate a component of the course, if the student successfully completes the remediation exam with a 70% or higher score, they will receive a 70% for that component to be averaged into the final course grade. The remediated grade for the component will not be higher than 70%, regardless of the exam score achieved. If the student receives less than 70% on the remediation exam for the component, they will receive a 66% (F course grade) for the course, regardless of their overall final course average, and be referred to the Promotion Board. Any student who is required to go before the Promotion Board due to the need to remediate a course(s) may not remediate until and unless the remediation has been approved by the Promotion Board and Dean. If the Promotion Board does not recommend the student be allowed to remediate the course(s) and the student is in the appeal process when the remediation exam is scheduled, the student will be allowed to study and take the exam while waiting on the results of the appeal; however, the exam will not be graded unless or until the Dean or Provost grants the appeal. Should the appeal process extend into the next block, students on appeal may attend class and sit for exams; however, the exams of a student on appeal will not be graded or recorded until/unless the appeal is granted. The student is only allowed to sit for exams in order to allow a student, who may be successful in their appeal, to not fall behind in the curriculum and testing. D Course Grade An OMS 1 or OMS 2 student who earned a “D” course grade and who is eligible to remediate the course, will have the course grade reported as an “IP” (In Progress) on his/her transcript until the prescribed remediation is attempted and a new grade is issued. As the only acceptable grade to progress in the curriculum is 70% or higher, and the “D” course grade awarded is a temporary status for those students who are allowed to remediate, “D” course grades are not awarded as a permanent grade, and are therefore, not recorded on the transcript. If the student successfully completes the remediation exam with a 70% or higher score, they will receive a 70% for the final course grade. If the student receives less than 70% on the remediation exam, they will receive an “F” course grade and be referred to the Promotion Board. The remediated course grade will not be higher than 70%, regardless of the exam score achieved.
