Effective Spring 2019
Academic Information - Developmental Education
Beginning spring 2019, course placement will be determined by high school grades in English and math as well as ACT® or SAT® scores. Multiple combinations of test scores and high school grades will be reviewed to offer the best placement for the student to be successful. Students will not be required to complete ACCUPLACER® placement testing unless their high school grades and/or test scores are over five years old. Additionally, Shelton State Community College has implemented new developmental course sequences. In math and English, MTH 098 and ENR 098 will be the first course options respectively. Reading courses are no longer required.
The new, statewide redesign of developmental coursework and placement will allow students to enter college-level courses within their first or second semester depending on initial placement. Additionally, these changes will provide supplemental classroom support for those who need additional assistance.
For all AA, AS, AAS, and CERT degree plans, the prerequisite coursework is currently listed as BSS 090 , RDG 085 , ENG 092 , ENG 093 , MTH 090 , MTH 091 , and MTH 092 . These courses will no longer be valid. Instead, the options will be ENR 098 , MTH 098 , ENG 099 with approved placement and MTH 099 with approved placement.
Please see Appendix I for all course updates.
