Placement test results can reveal a need for developmental course work in one or more areas (math or English). Developmental courses are required foundational courses designed to remediate academic deficiencies to a level that will allow you to be successful in college level courses. Developmental courses are not a substitute for any course listed in your major, but are in addition to those courses. Therefore, it is important that you establish a plan for incorporating developmental requirements into your major.
There are various options available for satisfying developmental requirements. The option you choose will 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 major
- the remediation resources available to you
Please review each option listed below and choose the one that you believe is the best fit for your skills and needs.
