Remedial and college preparatory courses are designed to bring basic skills in mathematics, English, science, and reading comprehension to a level generally expected of entering college students. Credits earned in remedial and college preparatory courses cannot be applied toward a certificate or an associate degree and are not calculated in the grade point average.
Remedial and college preparatory courses must be completed for certificates of 16 hours or more and all degrees. Developmental courses must be completed prior to enrollment in a college‐level course in the same area of study.
Remedial reading courses will be given priority over other remedial courses and must be taken first. Placement in other remedial courses will be based on the student’s program of study. Non‐degree students who may later elect to seek a degree or certificate of more than 16 credit hours must meet all regular admission and placement requirements.
Students enrolled in remedial courses must obtain the appropriate college officials approval if the student requests to take more than twenty (20) credit hours in the fall or spring terms and more than twelve (12) credit hours in the summer term. Students requiring remedial course work may require enrollment in an additional term to complete graduation requirements. However, in some cases, it may be possible for students to take remedial or college preparatory courses and degree or certificate courses in the same semester if all of the above conditions are met.
