Academic DivisionsTransitional Studies
The Division of Transitional Studies provides access to a high quality post-secondary learning experience while teaching the whole person. We are grounded in our disciplines and dedicated to meeting the needs of students from diverse educational, economic, and cultural backgrounds. We are committed to offering multiple pathways that lead to the development of cognitive skills and student success strategies for the communities we serve.
We offer courses in the following areas:
- Developmental Math
- Developmental Reading
- Developmental Writing
- English for Academic Purposes (EAP)
- College Success Courses
These courses provide students with instruction and strategies to support success in the classroom while also helping students develop life management and leadership skills and provide students with tools for career planning.
Students placing in two or more developmental courses must enroll in SLS1510. Students who place in ENC0015 or REA0007 are required to enroll in SLS0003 before enrolling in SLS1510.
Each spring, the division honors former Academic Support students who are graduating from the College. The following awards are given to students who have demonstrated academic excellence and leadership:
- The Bertha Flowers Murray Award is acknowledges a student who has completed two or more developmental education courses and currently has a minimum grade point average of 3.0. In reviewing nominations for this award, special consideration is given to students who began in the first level of developmental education.
- The Sally P. Search Award recognizes a student who has taken any developmental education course and has shown exceptional leadership ability through community service and/or involvement in campus activities and organizations. There is no GPA requirement.
