Developmental Studies Courses

Developmental courses are designed for students who are working to successfully transition to the College credit curriculum. These courses serve as a bridge between students’ current educational level and the College classroom experience. Students in Developmental Studies-level courses are ensured personal attention and frequent interaction with instructors.

Developmental courses are offered in three skills areas: integrated reading & writing, math, and algebra. Courses are scheduled each semester, day and evening, and most summer sessions. For more information, visit our College Catalog for a list of Developmental Courses.
