College Preparatory Education

College Preparatory Education courses are designed for students who need to strengthen their academic skills.

College Preparatory courses, which are numbered below 100, do not count toward a degree or diploma, but the credits do count toward full-time status for students. Grades for these courses are posted on student transcripts and computed as part of their grade point averages. Classes are available in three subject areas: reading, English, and math. Students are advised into these courses based on previous high school or college coursework and their scores on entrance tests, usually the ACCUPLACER tests and ALEKS placement assessment.
