Getting Started


The Developmental Education (DE) program offers courses to help students prepare for college in College Success Experience (CSE), English, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), Math, and Reading. Courses are numbered 0100 – 0999.Most Developmental Education classes include theory and lab hours.

Developmental courses are graded CR (credit) and NC (no credit) to help students build their skills without the pressure of the traditional grading system (A, B, C, D, F). While credit from courses numbered below 1000 is not transferable to other degree-granting institutions, these courses typically help students meet admissions requirements and program proficiencies. Eligible students may receive financial aid for up to 30 credit hours in Developmental Education courses. Interested students should contact the School of Adult & General Education (SAGE) at (505) 224-3939 for more information.
