DVR Hold Information

A Developmental Reading Advisor hold (DVR) is placed on a student’s file when the records indicate a student has had at least two unsuccessful attempts at a particular developmental reading course or has been involved in CCA.

  • Students need to schedule an appointment with a Developmental Reading Advisor (DRA) in order to discuss this matter and end the hold.

Completing developmental coursework is the first step to achieving academic goals. ACC takes very seriously the need to support students in completing the work so that they are prepared to succeed in college credit coursework.

  • The Developmental Reading Advisor will discuss the situation with the students and determine a plan for this coming semester. That plan will require them to take the appropriate developmental reading course and also require some supplemental work to support them in succeeding in the coming semester.
  • Students should meet with a Developmental Reading Advisor as soon as possible (prior to their next registration period). Otherwise, they will be unable to register for classes.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Dear _______________,

A Developmental Reading Advising hold (DVR) has been placed on your file because our records indicate that you have had at least two unsuccessful attempts at a particular developmental reading course or were involved in CCA/CCE.

You need to schedule an appointment with a Developmental Reading Advisor in order to discuss this matter and end the hold. Completeing your developmental course work is the first step to achieving your academic goals. ACC and the Developmental Reading Department take very seriously the need to support you in completing the work so that you are prepared to succeed in your college credit coursework.

The Developmental Reading Advisor will discuss your situation with you and the two of you will determine a plan for this semester. That plan will require you to take the appropriate developmental course and also require some supplemental work to support you in succeeding in the coming semester. Please meet with a Developmental Reading Advisor as soon as possible (prior to your next registration period).
