Developmental Courses

Courses with a course number below 100 are developmental courses designed to prepare students for college-level course work. Students are placed in these classes based upon their English and math sub-scores on the ACT or the verbal and math sub-scores on the SAT.  The Academic Dean may designate an alternative instrument to be used for placement if the student's ACT or SAT scores are more than the five years old.  Students placed in these courses are required to take them. Successful completion of these courses is a strong indicator that students are prepared for college coursework: therefore, dropping these courses is not  an option.

Developmental courses carry an institutional credit value and will count towards the student’s full time status. Developmental course grades are included in calculation of the grade point average. Hours do not count as degree credit towards the minimum hour requirement for the Associate or Bachelor’s degrees.
