The Division of Academic Support Programs houses the Developmental Studies Program, College Success courses, and the Learning Commons, which provides learning assistance to all TCC students.
The Developmental Studies Program provides opportunities for students to improve performance in the college-entry skills of English and writing, reading, and mathematics. Any student who scores below the state-adopted minimum college placement test score in any of thee three skill areas must register for the developmental courses indicated for that skill area.
College Success courses provide students with instruction and strategies to support success in the classroom. The courses also help 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.
