Academic Foundations Division
College students often need support in order to be successful in their chosen fields of study. The purpose of the Academic Foundations Division is to assist students with instructional support.
Academic foundation courses are provided for students who need to refresh or strengthen academic skills. Courses are available in mathematics, English/writing, reading, and study skills. A complete listing of these courses appears in the course description section of this publication. On the basis of placement assessment results and high school records, entering students may be REQUIRED to take one or more academic foundation courses.
Academic foundation courses carry college credit. They are included in the computation of a student’s cumulative grade point average and count toward financial aid requirements; however, they do not count toward degree requirements, and are not transferable to another college or university.
