Bridge Courses


Bridge courses have expanded to include Developmental Education Courses leading to College English, Reading, Math and TechMATH.

Bridge Courses continue to show promise in successful non-course based options (NCBO) for remediation. Identifying students, communicating the benefits and convincing students to enroll in the bridge courses remains a struggle. This is not likely to expand a great deal as the shortened options benefit the students who are on the "bubble" or near college-level. 

Bridge Courses are short, review classes taken just prior to the credit course for students who score close to passing on their TSI Assessment. This is an option for students who want to move more quickly into their credit math or English courses.
