Building the skills you need to be successful
Your core skills in the key areas of reading, writing and math need to be strong if you are to succeed in college. That's why we offer Developmental Education courses.
These are most common in the English and Math disciplines, with developmental courses being any of those numbered below 100. They do not count toward a degree or certificate. You may place into these courses based on our course placement process.
If you place into developmental math, you'll have two paths to choose from in order to work your way into college-level math; the path you choose will be determined by your intended major/educational goal. For help in choosing the right course, view our Math Paths diagram (see page 35 in PDF), and talk to Admissions or Counseling.
Review the basics and strengthen your skills with the following courses:
