Giving you the skills to move forward

Everyone can benefit from a higher education, but we understand that not everyone is equally prepared for college-level coursework. Waubonsee can help you strengthen certain foundational skills before you move on, so you have the best chance of success.

Learn at your level

All full-time degree-seeking students, as well as other English and math students, must receive proper course placement. You may place into courses that are less than 100-level, sometimes called developmental courses. Since these courses build your skill levels in core subjects, it is recommended that you take them in your first semester at Waubonsee.
