General Information

Introduction to College Reading (RD 097) and College Reading (RD 098) are designed for students with reading needs as evidenced by their high school records or test results. The aim of RD 097 is to help students establish efficient reading habits and to acquire strategies to improve vocabulary. RD 098 will help students build critical reading skills and apply them to college-level texts.

Students placed in RD 097 are required to pass both RD 097 and RD 098 unless exempted, based on course performance and/or post-test results.

RD 097 students must receive a grade of C or better to be passed into RD 098. RD 098 students must receive a grade of C or better to complete their reading requirement.

Students who receive a C- or lower grade for either course must retake that course.
