Developmental Education

The Developmental Education Program, Reinforced Instruction for Student Excellence (RISE), provides students with the opportunity to build academic skills and acquire knowledge needed to facilitate success in their desired curriculum program. For most students, RISE will consist of corequisite remediation, with a goal of providing students an opportunity to successfully complete their gateway math and English courses on their first attempts.

Developmental courses include both transition courses and corequisite courses in English (ENG) and math (MAT). The Transition English and Transition Math courses will provide one semester (or less) of developmental education prior to enrollment in the gateway English and math courses. The corequisite courses will allow students to enroll directly into their gateway English and math courses while receiving academic support alongside their gateway classes.
