Students will be enrolled in COMS 101 and one other class from the list above. COMS 101 is a required course for all students and it is advantageous to be able to access this class through Quarter Plus as this will give students flexibility going forward. The second class will be selected depending on the student's college credit, AP/IB scores, and class capacity. Please refer to your specific degree requirements in the Cal Poly Catalog.
While the Q+ Program schedule is rigorous, we want to make sure all our students have the tools they need to succeed. For students seeking support with their studies, there are several options. Q+ learning assistants will be assigned to each class and will host optional study sessions to aid students. Learning Assistants will be in the classroom with their students during classes and thus will know exactly what was covered and where students may be struggling.
Class instructors will also be hosting office hours where students can receive support in their studies. Please refer to the instructor page for instructor office hours. Most exciting of all, for the first time this year the Quarter Plus program will have and assigned academic advisor on campus to assist students in planning ahead for the rest of their year.
Checking for Duplicate Credits
Please be diligent about checking your assigned classes. It is your responsibility to ensure that we have not assigned you to a class where you already received credit. If you see a mistake, please inform us as soon as possible so we can make corrections. It may be too late to change your assigned courses once you begin the program on August 12th, 2017.
