PCCC offers an array of developmental English, computation and algebra courses that prepare students to work successfully in a college-level curriculum. Whether or not these courses are required is determined by a student’s performance on the College’s Placement Test. Students may take certain college-level courses along with some developmental courses.
The following developmental courses are offered to assist students in achieving college proficiency in reading, writing, basic mathematics, and/or algebra. Academic credit is not given for work in developmental and most ELS course work. In order to assist in planning student programs and to determine full- or part-time status for financial aid and other purposes, institutional credits are used in the same way as academic credits. Only courses that carry regular academic credit are applied toward certificates, diplomas, and degrees.
