- The Remediation Policy of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education applies
to all first-time entering freshmen and transfer students.
- Students may fulfill their remedial requirements by earning a satisfactory grade on
the appropriate Computerized Placement Test(s) ( CPT ) or by successfully completing
the appropriate remedial course(s).
- Students must successfully remediate basic skills course requirements within the first
24 semester hours attempted or have all subsequent enrollment restricted to deficiency
removal course(s) until the deficiencies are removed.
- Students are strongly encouraged to enroll in all required remedial course(s) during
their first semester at SWOSU.
- Transfer students with more than 24 hours attempted must fulfill all remedial requirements
during the first semester of enrollment at SWOSU. All subsequent enrollments are restricted
to deficiency removal course(s) until the deficiencies are removed.
- One re-test will be allowed on the CPT before enrolling and completing the remedial
course(s). Students must wait a minimum of two weeks before the re-test. The higher
score will be posted.
- Students wishing to test or re-test while enrolled in a remedial course must take
the initial CPT and re-test before the mid-term of the semester of enrollment. CPT
(s) shall not be administered to students enrolled in remedial course(s) past the
mid-term point of the semester.
- Students passing the CPT while enrolled in a required remedial class may withdraw
from the class with a grade of W or choose to remain in the course and earn a grade.
- Students who fail the initial CPT test and re-test while enrolled in a remedial course
and subsequently fail the course, may take an additional re-test before re-taking
the remedial course (by the end of the first day of class). Students may re-test one
time each time they receive an unsatisfactory grade in the remedial course before
re-taking the course (by the end of the first day of class).
- The President or his/her designee may allow a deserving student who failed to remediate
a basic skills deficiency in a single subject to continue to enroll in collegiate
level courses in addition to remedial course work beyond the 24-hour limit, providing
the student has demonstrated success in collegiate courses to date. Such exceptions
must be appropriately documented.
