Developmental Studies Accelerated Learning Course
This course is for students who demonstrate strong reading and writing skills in DE 010 or show promise for success through acceleration based on their College Placement exam English scores.
Students will enroll in both DE 025 Advanced Studies in Academic English and English Composition I (EN 101). In the Accelerated Learning Courses, Developmental English students join college level students in a Composition I course. The DE 025 course will assist advanced level Developmental English students in making the transition to college-level courses. In DE 025 students will learn strategies and techniques which will help them to be successful in Composition I.
Developmental Studies English Intensive Bootcamp
This workshop is for students who feel confident that they can complete a fast paced, intense course in efforts to accelerate through the Developmental sequence and or place into college level composition. This workshop will challenge students to develop their essays to meet the demands of college level English.

Students will also discover how to write an excellent introduction paragraph, how to develop “college level” body paragraphs, and how to finish with a strong conclusion. Additionally, students will learn to polish their reading comprehension and analytical skills with intensive work on critical reading.
