TCNJ’s Off-Site Graduate Programs (OSGP) is grateful for the relationship we have formed with PLS over the course of many years. A PLS class is required as part of almost every OSGP academic program and we have consistently remarked on our students’ high completion rate for PLS classes; 95% of students who start a PLS class finish on schedule. Additionally, our students speak highly of their PLS experiences, frequently noting the quality of the reading classes and how the foundations of reading are taught systematically, Finally, we appreciate how PLS classes are designed in a way that serve our international students who are living and working all over the world. Although asynchronous, students frequently comment on the sense of community formed within their PLS classes and express that they know one another before actually sitting together in a classroom at one of our global sites. PLS has helped to make the world a more personal place for our global students and we are proud of this continued partnership.
