Taking College Courses
Am I eligible to take college classes?Once a student in Learning Support has registered for all of their required Foundations and/or Corequisite Support courses, they are eligible to register for a limited number of college level courses.
Are there any restrictions?
- A student must be enrolled in all required coursework - Foundations, Corequisite Support, GPCS 1020 class if it is required - before being able to take college classes
- A student must meet all pre-requisites requirements for the college level course
- A student cannot accumulate more than 30 college credits without exiting Learning Support. A student who accumulates 30 college credits without exiting Learning Support courses is only able to take their required Learning Support coursework until they exit Learning Support.
Are there any exceptions?A student in Learning Support is able to take the GPC Seminar, GPCS 1020, without being in all of their required Learning Support courses.
They can also take Activity Physical Education Classes (like tennis, swimming, weight training, or fitness walking) but NOT Choices for Life (PHED 1011) or any 3 credit hour PHED class.
What classes are Learning Support students able to take?
- Allowable College-Level Courses Foundations and Corequisite students can take Note that not all classes on this list will be appropriate to all majors.

- You can also look at example schedules for how to build a schedule with Foundations or Corequisite Support requirements (using the Program Advisement Forms and Allowable College Courses Form).
