Perspective on Remediations
Standardize tests can be a powerful tool in helping to make admissions decisions for students. They can go a long way to helping to prove that a student has the skills necessary to succeed at UWF. Unfortunately, they can also demonstrate the alternative position every bit as easily. The remediation levels are slightly below the admission expectations on all three categories of the standardized exams to particularly reiterate that there is a difference between minimally qualified and academically prepared.
The state of Florida passed strict legislation that dictates much of the policy used in making admission decisions. As such, remediations requirements are outlined centrall by the state. UWF, like other schools in the SUS, is required to adhere to those standards. It's hard to make the argument that a person is worthy of an exception if they cannot demonstrate satisfactory college preparedness in these areas, so the Office of Undergraduate Admissions recruitment team will often work with students throughout the year to address any remediation concerns. Counselors can assist us in these dialogs by encouraging students to submit any/all test scores. Often, while a composite may be the same or lower, the sub-score may be high enough to impact remediation levels.
