Academic Development Policy
Possession of the basic skills of reading, writing and mathematics is a prerequisite to learning at the college level. The goal of Academic Development coursework is to provide students with an awareness of their academic ability and to offer courses of study which enable students to achieve academic success at the college level.
Students who do not possess the skills to perform adequately at the college level shall be required to successfully complete developmental courses in reading, writing and mathematics. Academic Development coursework is considered a prerequisite before any additional courses may be taken in the corresponding area. Academic Development courses receive institutional credit only.
