About Developmental Courses
Placement results can reveal a need for developmental coursework in one or more areas (math or English). Developmental courses give you the foundational skills needed to hit the ground running in college-level courses. Developmental courses aren't a substitute for your major-specific courses. If required, they're taken in addition to them.
Various options are 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 impact on your ability to do well in your major
- Potential enrollment restrictions for your major
- The remediation resources available to you
