COLLEGE-LEVEL ACADEMIC SKILLS
The College-Level Academic Skills requirement was designed by the State of Florida to demonstrate a level of student achievement in communication and computation skills for all undergraduate degree-seeking students.
On September 15, 2011 the Board of Governors approved an amendment to BOG Rule 6.017, Criteria for Awarding the Baccalaureate Degree, which eliminated the College Level Academic Skills (CLAS) requirement. Therefore, effective immediately, the CLAS requirement is no longer required for awarding the baccalaureate degree.
SASS degree audits have been updated to remove the CLAS requirement for currently enrolled students with a Catalog Year of 2011. For currently enrolled students with a Catalog Year prior to 2011, the SASS audit will continue to list the CLAS but will reflect the requirement as being met. Students who are not currently enrolled and who were not eligible to graduate in the past due to not being able to meet the CLAS requirement should contact their academic advisor for a current graduation review.
