What are Developmental Courses

Developmental courses are required as prerequisites for higher level English and Math courses, they do not count as credit toward graduation, and they do not impact college GPA. Students in developmental courses must earn a “C” or higher in order to take the next level course. The developmental courses qualify for Financial Aid.

What Scores Require Developmental Courses?
- An ACT English score of 17 or lower or SAT Evidence Based Reading and Writing of 470 or lower
     If age 25 or older at the start of the term, or if transferring 24 or more credits, you are exempt from the English developmental requirement
- An ACT Math score of 20 or lower or SAT Math score of 540 or lower
     The above SAT scores are for SAT tests taken after March 2016.
