On this month’s edition of Higher Ed News You Can Use from Onondaga Community College we’ll explain how our outstanding Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) is making a difference in student success rates. Professor Matt DelConte, Ph. D., who teaches Developmental Writing introduces us to ALP which allows students to take a credit-bearing English course along with Developmental Writing in the same semester. The program has worked so well the College has been awarded a $600,000 grant from SUNY’s Performance Improvement Plan to support more than a dozen colleges as each either creates or improves its co-requisite model for teaching.
