Math and English Course Placement
To ensure students the greatest opportunity for success in gateway freshman-level English and mathematics courses, NPRC employs corequisite support courses in math, reading, and writing. Each support course provides students with a two-credit hour learning experience at the pre-college level. These courses provide students with concurrent just-in-time instruction that complements the course content in the College’s first college-level writing and mathematics courses. All students are automatically enrolled in the appropriate support courses corresponding to their enrollment in mathematics and English courses.
In alignment with best practices in higher education, the College utilizes multiple measures for math and English course placement, including high school grade point average, standardized test scores, and placement testing as applicable. Students who meet one of the below outlined criteria may request an exemption from the respective support course(s) by emailing their Student Success Specialist or assigned advisor who will forward their request to the Office of the Registrar. This Office will notify the student of the request’s outcome.
