  • Council gets grant to support developmental education redesign

    Known as “corequisite” models of developmental education, the redesign will allow developmental education students to enroll directly into courses that count toward graduation requirements, provided they receive additional academic supports, such as tutoring, mentoring or supplemental instruction.
