Academic Foundations Courses
Success by Design
Academic Foundations courses were redesigned for fall 2011 and provide students with improved courses to strengthen academic skills for college-level learning success.
In the redesigned English and reading courses, students enroll in an accelerated eight-week, three credit hour developmental course. A combination of classroom and lab instruction utilizing MyWritingLab or MyReadingLab software provides a customized and flexible learning environment. Upon successful completion of the course, students will have the skills necessary to begin college-level English and related coursework.

In the redesigned college preparatory math program, students enroll in the three-credit hour MAT 0990 Developmental Mathematics course. Students will master the math competencies contained in nine modules utilizing MyMathLab software. Upon successful completion of the required modules, students will have the skills necessary to begin college-level math coursework.

Academic Foundations college preparatory courses do not meet Associate in Arts (AA) and Associate in Science (AS) degree general education requirements. These courses do not transfer to a university, but are transferrable within the Florida community college system. These courses cannot be used to meet graduation requirements for a degree or certificate program. College preparatory academic credit is given for these courses and they do count toward the grade point average (GPA) if the student earns a grade of A,B or C. Students must continually enroll in designated college preparatory courses until all requirements are completed.
NOTE: Students required to take two or more courses in Academic Foundations areas must enroll in College and Career Success (SLS 1501).
