Changes Are Coming to CPCC’s Developmental ENG and RED Courses

Students, are you taking Developmental Reading or Developmental English courses? If so, BIG changes are coming to these programs! You must see an advisor prior to registration. The spring 2014 term is the last semester for these courses as they will be changing for fall 2014.

Beginning in fall 2014, all Developmental Reading and Developmental English courses and their associated labs will transition to the new Developmental Reading and English (DRE) format. New courses for fall 2014 include DRE 096, 097 and 098. These DRE classes will replace the existing ENG 080, ENG 085, ENG 090, ENG 095, RED 080 and RED 090 courses. The new courses will be eight- week combined reading and writing classes.
