Effort Allows Remedial College Classes Sooner

October 25, 2012, 5:26 AM


A new effort by the South Dakota Department of Education and the Board of Regents will help the state's college-bound juniors and seniors complete required remedial coursework before starting college-level courses.

The Board of Regents requires students whose ACT sub-scores fall below 20 in math and 18 in English to take remedial courses prior to entry into college-level courses.

The new partnership will allow students to complete remedial coursework before entering one of the state's colleges. This will allow students who successfully complete the coursework to enter directly into college-level courses.

The Board of Regents estimates that about 28 percent of incoming freshmen require a remediation class in at least one subject.

The new program is available through the South Dakota Virtual School.
