    Help! Stuck in Remediation policy… cannot graduate!

    Thank you for your replies! Below is answer to some of your questions: I attended BHC. I checked out student book, the syllabus, and the BHC website, there is no place says I have to take or pass HESI. This is just known from the teachers to students. I have not signed anything. This has taken six months because she dragged the meetings to every other week and sometimes postponing the meetings. I talked to the remediation teacher last week and no meeting will be scheduled until at least in August. Dean is not available and I have to take few more remediation tests and get 90% on all of them prior to taking HESI!! I am still gathering more documents. I have never dealt with any lawyer and to be honest I am scared. I searched for “free lawyer for college students” over the weekend, and I will start making some phone calls this week.

    There were several students did not pass the first attempt but pass the second attempt. I did not pass the 2nd attempt and doing remediation. I believe I am the only one doing remediation, but I am not 100% sure.

    All the student nurses in my group (about 100 students) that we spent 1.5 years together we always text each other regarding exams, HESI, clinical, and other things. Everyone had to take HESI. My teacher and the nursing dean told me about the remediation rules and three more HESI exams (they emailed me). These information are not in student book. I know the only way to get my rights is to find a lawyer who can represent me who does not charge a fortune!

    Yes the goal is “taking the HESI Exit Exam and achieving the 850 score”. I believe Dallas County Community College is a public school. A month ago I called Texas Higher Education Board and I was told to Email StudentComplain@HigherEd.Texas.gov. I did not pursue that because I thought that would backslash from school and it will also take few months. I just want to make the right decision. I feel it is not right for the school not to let me take my three EXIT HESI exams.

    For grievance policy we were directed to have a meeting with the Dean. Even if we continue to have meeting with the bosses, they will support each other and we will waste few more months. Is there a free or inexpensive lawyer community group we could reach out to?

    Thank you for all replies. At current school: First Semester - August 2018 - I admitted to Nursing school and I passed all classes. 2nd Semester – Spring 2019 – I passed all classes. 3rd Semester – Summer 2019 – I passed all classes. 4th Semester – Fall 2019 – Final semester – I passed all classes.
  8. I have passed all my Nursing classes at my community College on December 2019, but I was denied receiving my Nursing associate diploma because I did not pass my Exit HESI exam. The Exit HESI passing score was 850, my score was 784. At first, I was told I need to go through the Remediation program working with my teacher at school which I did from January 2020 until now; we met online every other week. Then, on May 2020 I was told school has new policy; remediation test passing score is now 90% straight and Exit HESI new passing score is 900 instead of 850. Also, I need to pass the remediation test before I be able to take the Exit HESI exam again. Per my remediation teacher suggestion, I had a meeting with the Dean of Nursing school last month. I was told they will bring my concern in their next faculty meeting for policy change consideration. Although this policy is not on school website. I believe remediation questions are even more difficult than Exit HESI questions. I have spent last 6 months doing remediation. I know there is no way I would be able to pass remediation test with 90% score. I was told I am eligible to take the Exit HESI exam three more times before December 2020, but school is not letting me to take my Exit HESI exams! All my classmates graduated 6 months ago, and I am still waiting. I owe $40,000 student loan that I need to start paying back. I need my school allow me to take my Exit HESI test as soon as possible. Can someone suggest what options I have? Thank you!
