Academic Policies and Procedures » Developmental/Remedial Courses
Developmental or remedial courses are basic skills courses taught by the Center for Student Resources & Academic Support, the Department of Mathematics and the Haggerty English Language Program. Developmental or remedial courses offered by the College do not carry academic credit. Therefore, they do not count toward the total degree credits required for graduation; nor do they count toward class standing. They are, however, part of a student's semester workload and will be counted toward eligibility for full-time status. Grades earned in developmental or remedial courses reflect the evaluation of the student's performance in the course. These grades, however, are not computed in either the semester grade point average or the cumulative grade point average. A specific level of performance indicated by grades in such courses may be used as a prerequisite for higher-level courses or for demonstration of proficiency.
