Students come to college with various levels of knowledge and skills in reading, writing, and math and different previous educational experiences. Classes, below college level, are designed to ease your transition to college and start on a pathway to a degree. Improving your fundamental knowledge in these areas is important to being successful in the college level coursework required to meet your academic goals.
