Sharpen skills for college success.
Developmental education courses are available for students whose placement test scores indicate a need for additional preparation in the areas of reading, writing, and math skills prior to entering their program of study.
Typically, students take these courses prior to admission to a degree program. However, in some cases, developmental courses can be taken in conjunction with program-level coursework. Students who need developmental courses are assigned a pre-technical or pre-major advisor. The advisor assists students in selecting appropriate coursework and monitors the progress of each student toward meeting program admission requirements.
Courses in study skills are also available. These courses provide students with important college success skills such as taking tests, managing time, using the library, and taking notes. In addition, a computer learning laboratory and tutoring services are provided free of charge when extra help is needed.
Courses with a DE department code are counted in the total number of attempted hours on student transcripts, but they are not used to calculate a student’s grade point average (GPA). Even though these grades do not affect the GPA, they can affect financial aid eligibility. DE courses cannot be counted toward graduation.
