Remediation of Curricular and Performance Deficiencies


New freshmen and transfer students who have not completed the core curriculum requirement in high school listed under NEW FRESHMAN ADMISSION or who have not demonstrated performance
proficiency requirements will be considered deficient and must remediate these deficiencies as follows:

1. If a student has deficiencies in English, math, or science, the student may do one of the following:
a. Submit an ACT national subscore or UCO residual ACT subscore of 19 or above in the curricular area in which the deficiency exists. (ACT scores must be less than five years old.)
b. Take the Computerized Placement Test (CPT) and make the appropriate score in the curricular area in which the deficiency exists.
c. Take and pass the designated 0 - level course in the curricular area in which the deficiency exists. (0 - level courses do not count as college credit and are not computed in the GPA.)

2. To remediate the other deficiencies, the student must take an extra 3 credit hour college level course in the area in which the deficiency exists.

First-time freshmen must remediate all basic skills curricular deficiencies and demonstrate a minimal level of proficiency in the subject areas of math, English, science and reading within 24 credit hours attempted at UCO. Transfer students must remediate all basic skills course curricular deficiencies and demonstrate a minimal level of proficiency in the subject areas of math, English, science and reading within the first 12 semester credit hours at UCO.
If the student fails to remediate the deficiency in the designated time, the student will not be allowed to enroll in any course except the course(s) required to remediate the deficiency.
