Developmental Education OptionsAt CCBC, we realize that students come to us with a variety of learning styles and preferences.
While some students prefer to work individually in a self-paced course, others prefer a more structured group lecture or discussion format. Some students prefer courses, which meet over a long period of time, while others may prefer a more condensed course structure that can be completed in a shorter amount of weeks. There are also students who find it difficult to attend class regularly and would prefer to take courses online.
Our Developmental Education program offers courses in reading, English, and mathematics to help students attain the skills they need to perform successfully in college level courses.
Accelerated programs for developmental education
Accelerated Learning Program (ALP)
Academic Literacy - ACLT 052 & ACLT 053
Accelerated Math Program (AMP)
Students in the AMP Combined Course pair have one instructor and are only required to purchase the textbook of the higher-level course.
A learning community is an approach to the learning process that assumes that students are one of the best learning resources for one another! In a learning community, two or more classes are “paired,” and a group of students enrolls in both of the paired courses. Some learning communities combine developmental education courses with other developmental education or general education course options.
