Course numbers beginning with a "0" are considered foundational courses and count as institutional credit only. Grades received for foundational courses are not calculated in the student's cumulative GPA. For purposes of satisfactory academic progress these courses do not count as credits attempted or as credits earned toward any degree or certificate. Students who are required to take foundational courses must do so within their first 15 credits at the college; they will not be able to enroll in any other academic courses until this requirement is met. Foundational courses may be repeated only once without departmental permission under no circumstance will a student be permitted to attempt a foundational course more than three times. Students enrolled in the Goodwin Achievement Program (GAP) are not allowed to repeat any course.
Foundational courses may be eligible for financial aid; however, students are eligible for financial aid for only a maximum of 30 credits (10 attempted courses) in foundational course work.
