Core Principles for Transforming Remediation within a Comprehensive Student Success Strategy: A Joint Statement

Colleges and postsecondary systems across the nation have demonstrated remarkable progress since Core Principles for Transforming Remediation was published in 2012. States and institutions are phasing out standalone or multi-course remediation sequences, resulting in tens of thousands of students more quickly enrolling in and completing collegelevel courses.

Building on this progress, we have updated the principles to focus even greater attention on scaling practices that can provide all students—especially those who are lowincome or from historically underserved communities— with the guidance, support and skills they need to enter a coherent program of study and move toward their academic goals. We present these revised principles for transforming remediation in the context of a broader set of student success strategies that growing evidence suggests will enable institutions to significantly increase their students’ timely completion of certificates, licenses and degrees with labor market value.
