Developmental education provides instruction and services to help students develop the basic academic skills necessary to become successful learners. Whether students are recent high school graduates or returning adults, developmental education can provide appropriate preparation for success.
First-time students take an assessment test to determine their skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. This assessment helps the College place students in courses best suited to their skills. Students enrolled in developmental math or writing courses may take them in a classroom section or through the Open Learning method.
