Developmental Education (SCC and SFCC)

Many students entering college or returning after an extended absence from studies need additional work to prepare for college-level courses. To meet the needs of these students, SCC and SFCC offer a series of courses in mathematics, reading, writing and study skills. Placement into many of these courses is determined by a placement assessment.

Many courses are offered in the traditional classroom format and through individualized, self-paced instruction in a learning center. These courses are numbered below 100 and, although taken for credit, are nontransferable. They are included in the Course Descriptions section of this catalog under the English and mathematics headings.
