Developmental Education

Non-Credit Courses Preparing Students for College Entry
New student applicants are required to take a standardized placement examination prior to enrollment in curriculum programs. Test results will be used to determine which (if any) developmental courses may need to be completed prior to enrollment in college courses. Students who cannot document basic computer proficiency will be required to enroll in OST 080 before taking any computer course.

Sampson Community College has established placement standards. Required scores on the placement test indicate an applicant’s readiness to begin curriculum-level courses. Students who score below this level or lack documented proficiency in certain required courses have the opportunity to improve reading, English, math, chemistry, and keyboarding skills by taking Developmental Education courses.

The time required for completion of developmental courses varies from person to person. For most students, one to three semesters of study provide adequate preparation. Developmental Education courses are offered to help assure student success and to meet specific course prerequisite requirements. Developmental courses do not offer college credit. They are available to all students who plan to enter diploma or degree programs. A schedule that includes Developmental courses is developed for each student to suit his or her academic needs. Developmental requirements may extend the total time for graduation by one or two semesters for full-time students.
