Developmental Education

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, SFCC offers a series of courses in mathematics, reading, writing and study skills. Placement in many of these courses is determined by recommendation or performance on assessment tests required for admission to the college.

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. For additional information visit the Basic Studies page.
