Students who need assistance to become academically prepared for college-level courses may enroll in developmental classes at Western. These courses are available in multiple areas, including English, reading and math, and are designated with numbers below 100 (such as ENG 095). Students who enroll in developmental courses may include high school graduates as well as adults who may have been away from school for some time. Developmental courses seek to help students acquire the skills needed to succeed in college and expand career opportunities.
Developmental courses do not apply toward a WNC degree or honors designation and normally do not transfer to a university. Please see a counselor for more information.
