Developmental Courses

Course numbers beginning with a “0” are considered developmental courses. Grades received for developmental courses are not included in the calculation of the student’s cumulative GPA. For purposes of Satisfactory Academic Progress, these courses do not count as credits attempted or as credits earned toward any degree or certificate.

Students who are required to take developmental courses must do so within their first 15 credits at the University.

Developmental courses may be repeated only once without requesting permission, and under no circumstance will a student be permitted to attempt a developmental course more than three times.

Developmental courses may be eligible for financial aid; however, students are eligible for financial aid for a maximum of 30 credits (10 attempted courses) in developmental coursework.
