General Information

Developmental courses in reading, writing and math may be required of students before they enter higher-level, credit-bearing courses. Placement in these courses is determined by a placement exam as well as other criteria where appropriate.


The mission of the Developmental Studies Division is to provide quality education and support resources to our students, enabling them to master the skills and concepts necessary for success in college-level courses. The division also houses additional resources that serve all NCC students.
