Discouraged Courses

Students should try to avoid taking credit-level courses that involve high-level reading and writing skills such as history, government, sociology, psychology, speech, science, etc.  Thus, for example, students should complete Fundamental English (or test out of it) before enrolling in history and government. 
(READ 1213 students, however, should be fine for credit-level courses.) 

Math Courses

General Recommendations

  • Enroll in the appropriate math course in their first semester – START EARLY!
  • Do not skip a semester between math courses – DON’T STOP!
  • Do not skip a course in the sequence (unless a retest of the ACCUPLACER permits this).
  • If a student has failed a course, it is strongly encouraged that they retake it the following semester.
  • If a student has failed a course multiple times, they should consider dropping back to the previous course to build a stronger foundation.
