Tyler evaluates your readiness for college coursework by asking you to take English and Math placement tests when you apply to the College. If the placement tests indicate that you will benefit from developmental coursework, you’ll want to enroll in those courses as soon as possible.
Developmental English classes (known as English Fundamentals, or ENF) help students master academic reading, writing, and analytical skills that they will use to advance to upper level classes and beyond.
In developmental math classes (known as Math Essentials or MTE), students use a structured set of modules to strengthen the skills they need to succeed in credit-level classes.
The attention and guidance you’ll receive in developmental classes is designed to give you confidence as a student and to build your skills as you work toward your degree or certificate.
If you have questions about which developmental courses you need to take, see your advisor.
