who wish to enroll in courses that require college-level reading or
writing skills must take assessment tests in these areas. For students
who do not demonstrate college readiness on the assessment tests, many
levels of reading, and writing developmental courses are offered to
enable students to complete the prerequisites for college-level courses
and to satisfy Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requirements.
education courses provide students with the skills and confidence
necessary to succeed in college-level courses and are listed in the
catalogue as DREA for developmental reading and DWRI for developmental writing. Developmental
courses are numbered 0100 and below. These courses carry institutional
credit but do not count toward a degree or certificate.
