Gadsden State offers courses in English, mathematics, and reading designed specifically for those students who need to improve their ability in order to benefit from higher education. These courses produce institutional, non-transferable credit only and will not satisfy the requirements for degrees, certificates, and diplomas. These courses allow students to begin studying at their own level in order to develop the skills and knowledge that they will need to attempt regular credit-bearing courses. Descriptions of these courses (ENG 099; ENR 098; MTH 098, MTH 099, MTH 109, and MTH 111) appear in the Course Descriptions chapter of this catalog. For more information about developmental studies, individuals should contact the appropriate academic department.
