The ADVANCE program consists of five courses plus labs designed to prepare students for the courses they will be taking in Harding's Liberal Arts curriculum.
Students are initially placed in ADVANCE courses based on their ACT/SAT scores. Other assessments will be used either before advising (RDNG 100/102 and 101/103) or on the first day of class (ENG 100). Students who test out of these classes will have the appropriate adjustments made to their schedules as soon as possible. All students in the ADVANCE Program are required to take PSY 101 (Introduction to University Studies).
The following courses are offered in the ADVANCE program
Academic Reading I
Lab with Reading 100
Academic Reading II
Lab with Reading 101
Introduction to University Studies
*These courses do not count as college credit but do count toward financial aid eligibility and athletic eligibility and are used in calculating GPA and determining academic standing.
