Rules for Students in Developmental Courses
RULES FOR STUDENTS IN DEVELOPMENTAL COURSES
Students in developmental courses:
- may not drop developmental courses (DGS 100, ENGL 100, MATH 100 or 101, or RDG 100). Students will not be allowed to drop developmental courses, except for extraordinary situations;
- must participate in lab activities associated with the developmental courses;
- may not advance to the next course [ENGL 100 to ENGL 111, MATH 100 to MATH 101, or MATH 101 to college-level mathematics] until the student has completed the prerequisite course with a grade of “C” or better;
- who do not achieve a grade of “C” or better in a development course must re-enroll in this course during the student’s next semester.
A student placed in a development Mathematics course (MATH 100 or 101) must enroll in this course during his/her first semester and continue enrollment in Mathematics courses until s/he has successfully completed a college level Mathematics course.
A student placed in ENGL 100 must enroll in this course during his/her first semester and continue enrollment in English courses until he/she successfully completed the freshman-level English sequence [i.e., ENGL 111 and 112]. Students enrolled in ENGL 100 will be given diagnostic writing assessments during the first and second days of class. A good performance on either of these assessments will permit a student to switch from ENGL 100 to ENGL 111 within the late registration period.
Exceptions to these rules require approval of the Dean of Student Success.
