Accelerated 8-Week Programs

Acceleration is the reorganization of instruction and curricula into 8-week courses in order to expedite the completion of developmental education coursework. TSC students have the opportunity to complete two levels of developmental education coursework in one semester.

The sequence of INRW-0421 and INRW-0422 courses constitutes the two components of our accelerated programs.

Co-requisite Programs

Co-requisite models give developmental education students the opportunity to enroll in credit-bearing courses while simultaneously completing their developmental education course work. TSC students will transfer learning strategies and skills to general education (non-developmental) courses.

Our co-requisite programs typically include:

  • Integrated Reading and Writing and Composition I
  • Integrated Reading and Writing and Art Appreciation
  • Integrated Reading and Writing and United States History I
  • Integrated Reading and Writing and Public Speaking
  • Integrated Reading and Writing and Introduction to Chemistry
  • Integrated Reading and Writing and Introduction to Criminal Justice

College Prep Programs

College Prep Programs give TSC students an opportunity to immediately begin general (non-developmental education) courses. Students who are placed into the highest level of developmental education courses have the opportunity to enroll in a one-week workshop before the Fall semester begins. During these workshops, students’ strengths and needs will be identified, and students will refine and build reading and writing skills necessary for college level work. Once they complete and pass this one-week workshop, they will be able to enroll in their general education courses in the Fall.
