Academic Success Starts Here! The mission of the academic resource lab is to help students with diverse learning styles, and enhance their academic experiences by providing individualized academic support. Every student enrolled at Meek Center is encouraged to utilize the services provided by the Academic Support Center. The most successful students know that the sooner they use the learning resources at MDC, the more likely they are to achieve their academic goals. All services developed have been designed for participant flexibility and are free of charge for all registered students.
All first-time-in college applicants who intend to enter degree programs are tested for reading, writing and mathematics proficiency prior to completion of registration. Students will be placed in College Preparatory English, Reading and/or Mathematics if test scores indicate a need for such instruction. A student's enrollment in certain credit courses may be restricted because of academic deficiencies.
In accordance with Florida law 240.321, students may use Adult Basic Education, Adult Secondary Education, or private provider instruction as an alternative to traditional college preparatory instruction.
State law requires students to successfully complete their College Preparatory instruction by the time they have accumulated twelve (12) hours of college credit coursework. Students, however, may accrue more than (12) credit hours, provided they maintain continuous enrollment in College Preparatory instruction.
State Board rule limits the number of attempts a student may have to successfully complete a College Preparatory course. Enrollment in a class beyond the 100 percent refund period, regardless of whether a student finishes the term, is considered an attempt.
