Academic Support Courses

Southwestern College has designed two academic support courses, one of which serves to mentor students on academic probation (ESKL080); the other supports students who apply to the college with less than minimum admissions requirements and have been conditionally admitted to Southwestern College by the Conditional Admittance Committee (ESKL 079).

ESKL 079: Essential Skills

A course designed to strengthen student skills and monitor student success by developing practical academic skills and building on student strengths. The curriculum will be adapted to address each individual student's needs. Required for students who are admitted conditionally. Conditionally admitted students are automatically enrolled; other students are admitted to Essential Skills only by consent of the vice president for retention and student success. A grade of “Unsatisfactory” in Essential Skills may be grounds for suspension. Credit 0 hours. Graded S/U.

ESKL080 Academic Mentoring

This course is designed to assist students who have been placed on academic probation in improving study skills and developing a strategy for academic success. Students in the course will be required to have regular contact with an academic mentor and complete monitored study hall hours every week. The course may be required of students placed on academic probation. A grade of "Unsatisfactory" in Academic Mentoring may be grounds for suspension. Credit 0 hours. Graded S/U. May be repeated

ESKL courses are designed to help these specific student populations develop strategies for success in college. Probationary and conditionally admitted students are automatically enrolled in the appropriate course; other students are admitted to the courses only by consent of the vice president for retention and student success.
