  • 4. Why Academic Pathways are Important • Map academic goals and progress • Connect academic and student services • Guide course planning, selection and sequencing, semester by semester • Provide continuity and consistency in advising, coaching and mentoring • Prompt students to complete math, English, FYE/SLS, and other general education requirements early on—in sequence (ideally in first year at MDC). • Prompt students who fail or withdraw from a course to take it again immediately in the next semester.
  • 5. What’s New for Fall 2014 • Updates to original 4 pathways – Biology – Business – Criminal Justice – Psychology • 5 new pathways in Social Sciences – International Relations – Political Science – History – Anthropology – Sociology
  • 6. What’s New for Fall 2014 • 4 New Pathways in Arts and Humanities – Art – Philosophy – Music – Theater/Drama • 10 new additional pathways in – Architecture – Early Childhood (3) and Exceptional Student Education – Hospitality Administration and Tourism Management – Interior Design – Mass Communications/Journalism – Mathematics
  • 7. What’s New for Fall 2014 • 14 new pathways in Allied Health and Nursing – Health Information Management – Dental Hygiene – Diagnostic Medical Sonography – Nuclear Medicine – Physical Therapy Assistant – Radiography – Respiratory Care – Opticianry – Vet Tech – Physician Assistant – Nursing Generic – Nursing Transitional – Clinical Lab Sciences – Histologic Technology
  • 8. What’s New for Fall 2014 ? 1. Program sheets for most remaining AS programs 2. New SLS requirement SLS 1106 (FYE): 1 credit course for students with college-level course load; must be satisfied by 16th college credit benchmark SLS 1505: 1 credit course for students with1 developmental course SLS 1510: 3 credit course for students with 2 or more developmental courses
  • 9. What’s New for Fall 2014? (continued) 3. New foreign language requirement for AA students: – Requirement is 8 credit hours or equivalent – Required for both AA degree AND admission to baccalaureate programs in Florida – Students can satisfy requirement with proof of proficiency via CLEP OR 2 consecutive years of successful foreign language completion in high school – Students who satisfy foreign language requirement choose the next course listed on pathway to complete semester load
  • 10. What’s New for Fall 2014? (continued) • Some baccalaureate programs require additional course work beyond 60 credits for junior standing • These additional courses are listed in a separate section below the 60 credit hours on the templates – As long as they meet FLVC requirements for baccalaureate admissions – For questions go to: Florida Virtual College, Common Pre-Requisite Manual http://ss.flvc.org/flvc/portal/Home_Page/Student%20Servi ces/College_Transfer_Center/common_Preqrequiste_Man ual
  • 11. How to Use the Pathway Template • All pathways follow the same format • All AA pathways reflect the 60 credits required for completion of degree • Slight differences between the AA and AS pathways • Students SHOULD take the courses listed on the pathways IN THESE SEQUENCES – Best prepare students for further study in transfer major at transfer institution • Important to discuss with students what their academic and professional goals are, and intended transfer programs.
  • 12. Pathways Contain Important Notes Note 1: MAT1033 counts towards the 24 credit Elective block but does not fulfill General Education math requirement Note 2: SLS 1106 must be taken by 16th earned credit for AA degree for FTIC students. It also counts towards the 24 credit Elective block Note 3: credits for Natural Science lab courses will count towards the General Education elective and/or the 24 credit Elective block
  • 13. Pathways contain Important Notes Note 4: Credits earned by taking CGS1060 are split between the General Education elective and/or the 24 credit Elective Block Remember that the Gordon Rule requires six semester hours of English and six additional hours of approved courses where student demonstrates college-level writing skills

  • 18. Hands-on Student Scenarios What to do “if” and “when” Scenario 1: Exempt student chooses to take one or more developmental courses or non-exempt student has to complete developmental requirements before taking college-level courses
  • 19. Hands-on Student Scenarios What to do “if” and “when” Scenario 1: Exempt student chooses to take one or more developmental courses or non-exempt student has to complete developmental requirements before taking college-level courses • Students should complete their Dev Ed sequence and Gen Ed courses first, especially math and English. • Be sure to register student in SLS 1505 or 1510, based on how many developmental courses student is taking. Students who take SLS1505 or 1510 do not have to take FYE1106. • Electives will be moved to the following semester.
  • 20. Hands-on Student Scenarios What to do “if” and “when” Scenario 2: Student changes program of study, requiring a new pathway
  • 21. Hands-on Student Scenarios What to do “if” and “when” Scenario 2: Student changes program of study, requiring a new pathway • Use this opportunity to have a conversation with the student about changing pathways. • Think of course economy. Which previously completed courses can satisfy the student’s new pathway requirements? • Revise the IEP to reflect the new pathway • Student may have to sacrifice some electives to complete all Florida, MDC and transfer institution requirements
  • 22. Hands-on Student Scenarios What to do “if” and “when” Scenario 3: Student cannot register for courses in pathway sequence because they are not available
  • 23. Hands-on Student Scenarios What to do “if” and “when” Scenario 3: Student cannot register for courses in pathway sequence because they are not available • Is the course being offered at another campus? • Call your Director of Advisement when you notice that a course is in short supply. He/she will contact the department chair to ask if more sections can be opened up. • Focus on completing the Gen Ed courses, then the pre- requisites.
  • 24. Hands-on Student Scenarios What to do “if” and “when” Scenario 4: Student fails a course
  • 25. Hands-on Student Scenarios What to do “if” and “when” Scenario 4: Student fails a course • Encourage students to re-take the course as soon as possible (ideally, the next semester), rather than waiting to re-take it. • Explain the implications in terms of the time to complete. If a student who declares a Biology Pathway fails MAC1105, that could mean that the student cannot complete begin the Chemistry series, since CHM1045 has a co-requisite of MAC1105. • Adjust the IEP to address the failed course.
  • 26. Hands-on Student Scenarios What to do “if” and “when” Scenario 5: Student must complete foreign language requirement or student has already met foreign language requirements
  • 27. Hands-on Student Scenarios What to do “if” and “when” Scenario 5: Student must complete foreign language requirement or student has already met foreign language requirements • For students who have satisfied the foreign language requirement already,(CLEP or satisfactory completion of two consecutive high School courses) encourage them to take other electives, Gen Ed courses, or recommended courses for junior standing.
