College students sometimes need support in order to be successful in their chosen fields of study. The purpose of the Academic Foundations programs is to assist students with instructional support.
Academic Foundations courses are provided for students who need to refresh or strengthen academic skills. Courses are available in mathematics, reading, writing and study skills. A complete listing and descriptions of these courses can be found by going to the respective discipline pages and following the COURSES link.
On the basis of assessment results and high school records, entering students may be required to take one or more Academic Foundations courses, which 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.
Individualized learning activities including listening and note taking, punctuation and grammar, vocabulary and basic arithmetic and algebra are available.
