Subject: Advising question

 

Hello everyone,

I have a mentee who was a non-science major and 
took BIOL 1101 and 1102. Now that he is an ITEC 
major, he needs to take Chemistry. And of course, 
he is wondering if those unused Biology courses 
can be used to satisfy the Chemistry requirements. 
I am not sure if we have a precedent for 
that and was wondering if this is an option?

 
Thank you.

Regards,

Hi Sonal,

 

          The IT curriculum says CHEM 1211K and 
CHEM 1212K are required for all IT major students. 
So normally they cannot be substituted by 
BIOL 1101 and 1102.

    I am new to the mentoring committee, so I am 
not 100% sure about my answer. Cynthia is an expert 
in this and I cc-ed her. She may be able to answer 
your question.

 

Thanks,

The answer is no. Bio1101 and 1102 are none 
science major options and can not apply to ITEC

Subject: Question about missing credit

 

Hi Ali,

 

I've a student who has a transferred credit for 
MATH calculus I which is a required course. Since 
he has 3 transferred credit for the course, he just 
needs an extra credit. Should it be a 
MATH course or can it be an any ITEC course.

He is in IT major and already have sufficient credit 
for open electives.

Please let me know.

 

Thanks,

 

Sean

Hi Sean,

 
        I know when students transfer ITEC1001 with 
3 credit hours to GGC, they need to take another ITEC 
course to cover the remaining 1 credit hour of the 4 
credit hours of ITEC 1001. So I think it is the same 
for the MATH calculus course. The students with 3 credit 
hours transferred in, need to take another Math or 
ITEC course to cover the remaining 1 hour. But to make 
it happen, the student needs to fill out the course 
substitution form.

 
Thanks,

Shuhua

Hello Sean, 

     I don’t believe that this is information is correct 
Sean.  I believe that any extra credit from electives will 
fill this missing hour spot.  Just make sure the student 
counts that within their possible elective hours left to 
take.  But you can verify this with Keri Hurney in the SST 
office (SSTadvising@ggc.edu).  Ali

Ali,


Hope all is well. I have a question related to veterans. 
Do they have PE requirements waived? That’s what the 
director of our veterans office told one of my mentees. 
And if so, do they still have to earn the 
credits elsewhere?

Veterans can get their PE requirements waived.  They 
have to take their discharge papers (I forget the 
form number DD- ###, but the vets know) to the 
registrar’s office and they will apply the credits 
to the vet’s transcripts.

Hello Shuhua and Rashaad,

Can you share some information about the Georgia 
History test that the students can take at GGC? 
I have a mentee who will have to take it. And I 
was wondering if I can find information about 
the test somewhere online? How can a student

Hi Sonal,

This is what I found here on GGC website: 
http://www.ggc.edu/academics/
academic-opportunities-and-support/
testing-services/tests-offered/
index.html#legislative

 
Georgia History and Georgia Constitution Tests

The Georgia History test is a paper and pencil 
test and the Georgia Constitution test is offered 
through MyCourses in Testing Services. Students 
who need to take either the Georgia History or 
the Georgia Constitution test or both must 
register with Testing Services at least one 
week in advance of the testing day. Students 
will need to provide proof from the Registrar’s 
office that they are eligible to take the Georgia 
History or Georgia Constitution tests or both. 
There is no charge for these tests.

Students are limited to one attempt at passing 
the Georgia History or the Georgia Constitution 
tests. After that students must enroll in HIST 
2111/2112 and/or POLS 1101. Students should 
contact Testing Services at 678.407.5322 to 
schedule an appointment for legislative exams.

 
Thanks,

Shuhua

Subject: ITEC mentoring questions

Hi Jeff,
 
I have a couple of questions that arose from mentoring 
an ITEC major. I hope that either you have the answers, 
or you could remind me who the ITEC mentors are so I can 
get in touch with them (Digital Media, specifically).
 
First of all, this student took the BIOL 1101-02 sequence 
before switching to an ITEC major. Has the dean ever 
approved an Area D substitution for this over the 
CHEM 1211-12 sequence? Is it even worth trying?
 
Secondly, as an ITEC major, can a student take MGMT 3000 – 
Principles of Management having only taken ITEC 2201 – 
Intro to Info Systems? I think the answer is yes, but 
I’d like to confirm that.
 
Prerequisite: (BUSA 2105; BUSA 2106) or ITEC 2201; 
or consent of instructor
 
The catalogue on the website has parentheses around 
the business classes, but DegreeWorks does not, 
and Banner is all but unreadable.
 
Thanks for your help.

Hi Matt,

For the first question, the answer is NO. 
Bio1101 and 1102 are none science major options and 
can not apply to ITEC.

For the second question, the answer is YES. 
The only requirement for an ITEC student to 
take MGMT3000 is ITEC2201.

Hi All,

A grade D of a course is considered passing if:

       1. The course is used to meet one of 
the requirements of Area A to F (the left side 
of any GGC curriculum, such as GE courses)
       2. It is not used to meet to the 
requirements of Program of Study (the right side 
of any GGC curriculum, such as open electives)
       3. There is no other required course 
that uses this course as one of the prerequisites.

This is my understanding. If you guys have 
anything to add, feel free to do so.

Thanks,

Hi Cynthia,

    Could you please help us answer this question 
from Kamal (see email below)?
    I know STEC 4500 can be repeated twice 
(6 credit hours) for Biology/Chem/Math and it is 
explicitly listed as such in their curricula. But 
when I checked ITEC curricula, they do not 
say STEC 4500 can be taken twice.

I believe if they take a second STEC 4500, it would 
count as an elective.  I emailed a few people who 
have had students over multiple semesters to see 
how it worked for their students, but have not heard 
back.  I do know that if it doesn't show in degree 
works as an ITEC elective, a course substitution 
can be submitted to have it approved as an ITEC 
elective as opposed to an open elective (which are 
restricted). I would say that more than 2 4500 
classes could be an issue, but you may want to 
ask the registrar about this.  When I get answers 
from those declining with this, I will forward.

Yes.  Several ITEC students have successfully 
completed more than one STEC 4500 and received 
credit under electives.  May have to do a course 
substitution forms if credits do not show as 
ITEC electives, but this is a common substitution 
and I've never known the dean to turn one down. 
At graduation audit, the registrar often does it 
automatically, but can't rely on that.

Hello,
 
I have some question about my Mentee. 
The student has switched from Software 
development to Enterprise systems. He 
trying to register ITEC4750 which he 
has al prerequisites, but he is getting 
a prerequisite error. In addition he 
is getting the same error when he is 
trying to register MKTG3000. 
For MKTG3000 the prerequisites are 
BUSA2105 and BUSA2106, which I see 
nowhere in the enterprise plan that 
was published on web site. My question 
is there a way he can register MKTG3000 
or does he need to take both classes, 
in case he has to take these classes, 
can these be counted as open electives. 
In regard to the ITEC4750 class, I am not 
sure why he is not able to register.
 
Thanks,

I looked him up in Banner.  He doesn’t 
have the prerequisite for ITEC 4750 
because he is registered for 4150 which 
is a prerequisite- NOT a corequisite.
For MKTG 3000, there are two possible solutions:
1.  Change catalog year to 2018-19- MKTG 3000 
has been removed as a required course.  Student 
can do this by emailing GGCRegistrar@ggc.edu with 
name, 900# and requested new catalog year.  I did 
a what-if and this does not change his number of 
credits already needed.
2.  In the past, the business school has waived 
the prerequisite for ITEC Enterprise students.  
Not sure who does this now, but start by emailing 
sstAdvising@ggc.edu for guidance on getting the 
business prerequisite waived.   At best, Keri can 
waive it, at worst, she knows who in business to 
email.  It used to be Kathleen Pinson, but she is 
no longer an associate dean so it has probably 
changed to another person and I haven’t done it 
in a while.
Personally, I like option 1 because I think the 
newer catalog is a better fit for IT students.
