Satisfying Developmental Requirements
Placement test results can reveal a need for developmental course work in one or more areas (math, reading, or English). Developmental courses are foundational courses designed to remediate academic deficiencies to a level that will allow you to be successful in college-level course work. Developmental courses are not substitutes for courses in your major; they are additional courses.
If you have developmental requirements, you will learn about them during your Pre-enrollment Advising Session. A number of options are available to satisfy those requirements. The option you choose may depend upon a number of factors, including:
- the number or types of developmental course requirements you have
- the effect those weak areas might have on your ability to do well in your major
- enrollment restrictions that might be in place for your selected major
- the remediation resources you have available to you
Please review each option and choose the one that is most appropriate for you. At your Pre-enrollment Advising Session, you may consult with faculty and staff for guidance.
