In keeping with the state mandated Texas Success Initiative, entering students must take a placement test in English, Mathematics, and Reading. Students who have not yet successfully completed college-level course work or who do not place into college-level course work per the placement test will be placed into the appropriate level of developmental education. Entry into the sequence depends upon individual academic history and/or placement test scores. Students complete the developmental education sequence either by successfully completing the exit level course or by re-testing into college-level course work. Developmental education courses do not yield degree plan credit. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in placement test preparation offered through the PREP Program prior to taking the placement test.
