1008.02 Definitions
(1) “Developmental education” means instruction through which a high

the communication and computation skills necessary to successfully
complete college credit instruction. Developmental education may be
delivered through a variety of accelerated and corequisite strategies
and includes any of the following:
(a) Modularized instruction that is customized and targeted to address
specific skills gaps.
(b) Compressed course structures that accelerate student progression
from developmental instruction to college-level coursework.
(c) Contextualized developmental instruction that is related to metamajors.
(d) Corequisite developmental instruction or tutoring that supplements
credit instruction while a student is concurrently enrolled in a creditbearing course.
Description of Costs & Financial Aid
• US Department of Education administered
financial aid (i.e. Pell) will cover optional
developmental education courses

consultation with the Board of Governors, shall approve a
series of meta-majors and the academic pathways that
