Bravo! This is a great change.We don't need to support slackers and quitters.
Now if they start drug testing welfare recipients and put a 5 year limit on it. We can say we have made some progress.
Why all the whining? If they can't keep up a C average OR complete 50% of their classes, then they aren't serious students and we shouldn't be wasting tax payer dollars on them.
The headline says 'costly'...for whom??? Not the loser student who has zero discipline to stay ON course and stay IN the course! Ultimately it was 'costly' for the tax payer. GREAT!!! About time there are some measurements and consequences to those who do not have a clue who pays the bills!!! The tax payer!!!
These seem like ridiculously low standards to me. It's rather appalling that the college has been putting up with behavior like this up to now. I suspect the reason for their concern is contained in the last paragraph - "In addition, if students were forced to drop out, the college will lose tuition dollars and be financially strained." Perhaps the college should start acting more like an institute of higher learning and less like a day care center?
It is about time to get rid of mooching professional students. Work your way thru college....lots of people do it.
