Developmental Studies

Students scoring below the official cutoff scores on the placement test will be assigned to the appropriate developmental course(s). These courses are designed to provide the student with the reading, writing, mathematics and keyboarding skills needed to enter a one- or two-year program at RichmondCC.

Because most curriculum courses have developmental prerequisites, the following restrictions apply:

  • Students will not be allowed to register for those curriculum courses until the prerequisite courses are passed.
  • Students required to take DRE 097 should postpone taking any curriculum courses until they progress to DRE 098.
  • Students required to take more than one developmental course should limit their enrollment in curriculum courses to those requiring the least reading, writing and computational competencies.
