College Preparatory and Transitional Studies
Classes in the College Preparatory and Transitional Studies are designed for students who need refresher courses in English, math, and/or reading before taking college-level courses. These classes provide an excellent starting point for many students who are focused on their educational futures. Courses are structured for students who score at or above the minimum entrance scores on the college’s placement test, but below specific program-entrance requirements. Developmental-level courses (011, 012, 031 and 032) are offered in a computer-based format and are often available fully online. Integrated reading and English classes (RWR 032, RWR 100) are available to help students progress into curriculum-level courses more quickly. RWR 032/ RWR 012 replaces both RDG 012/ RDG 032 and ENG 012/ ENG 032; similarly, RWR 100 replaces both RDG 100 and ENG 100.
COL 103, Introduction to College, is a course designed to assist students with study skills, time and stress management, budgeting, career planning, and note taking.
