The Developmental Studies Division provides services, which include a variety of coursework, to a wide range of students from diverse academic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
College Orientation is required for all degree-seeking, first-time students. College Orientation allows students to become familiar with the various services offered at Crowder, to participate in the service aspect of Crowder’s mission, and to learn the requirements for degree completion. College Success is a proactive course that helps students develop skills and dispositions necessary to navigate the steps for completion of a college degree or certificate.
College Connections is an intervention course which allows students with a history of poor academic progress the opportunity to develop values and beliefs associated with academic success.
The English Language Institute classes allow non-native speakers to learn English for academic purposes. Scores from the ACT and COMPASS tests are used to determine a student’s readiness for college-level coursework. Students who enter college without the academic knowledge and skills needed to enroll in courses requiring intensive math, reading and English skills require additional academic support which is provided through the division.
