New Developmental Math & English Classes

Attention: New Prerequisite Requirements

To register for most college-level courses, students must complete (or take at the same time) the College Composition and Reading (CCR) or English requirement. If you need to take a CCR course and you have trouble registering or you get a prerequisite error message, please call:

 
Boulder County Campus – (303) 678-3628
Brighton Center (303) 404-5099
Larimer Campus (970) 204-8332
Westminster Campus (303) 404-5000
Online Learning (303) 404-5513


What are the New College Composition and Reading Courses?

The new College Composition and Reading (CCR) courses replace the English and Reading developmental sequence. The three CCR courses—CCR 092, CCR 093, and CCR 094—are not a sequence. Each CCR class prepares students to enter into ENG 121 upon successful completion.

These courses integrate reading skills with writing skills.

The goal is to provide students a supportive environment and personal assistance to accelerate their enrollment and success in a college level course. Both CCR 093 and CCR 094 require students to enroll in two classes that are paired or linked, so it’s important to talk with an advisor about enrolling in CCR.

Course Course Focus Great for Students Who... Time Required
CCR 094
A.K.A
“Studio 121”

 

This course provides students with supplemental resources and time to complete ENG 121. Students enroll in designated sections of ENG 121 and CCR 094. To learn more about Studio 121, talk with an advisor.

 

 

 

  • Want to finish CCR 094 and ENG 121 in one semester
  • Are ready for ENG 121 with support
  • Realize there is a heavy amount of reading and writing coursework in both courses
  • Need ENG 121 as part of their academic program

 

6 Credit Hours
Students should be ready to commit to 6 credits of reading and writing coursework.

 

CCR 093
A.K.A
“Studio D”
(“D” is for
“Discipline”)

 

This course supports students’ reading and writing in the context of a content area. Students enroll in designated GT pathways classes and CCR 093. To learn which GT courses are paired with CCR 093 on your campus, talk with an advisor.

 

 

  • Feel nervous about the amount of writing produced in CCR 094 and want to spread writing coursework across multiple semesters
  • Interested in a GT pathways course and would like support reading and writing college-level texts in the GT discipline class, for example, Psychology, Philosophy, Biology, Humanities, History
6 Credit Hours
Students should be prepared to invest 3 credits in a reading/writing course while completing a GT course that requires such skills.
CCR 092
A.K.A.
“5-Credit
Reading and
Writing”

 

This course uses an intensive and supported approach to prepare students for ENG 121. To learn more about CCR 092, talk with an advisor.

 

  • Need additional academic skills support
  • Need additional support from advising, Writing Center, and tutoring

 

5 Credit Hours
This is the only choice for students at these placement levels.
This is an accelerated reading and writing course with a lot of embedded support.

What are the New Math Courses?

There are two new math courses that prepare students to enter into college-level math upon successful completion. Successful completion of either one of the new courses replaces the current model of a sequence of up to four non-transfer math courses (MAT 045 through MAT 099). Because the two math classes prepare students for a degree along two distinct pathways, it’s important to talk with an advisor prior to registration.

The new courses allow students to follow one of two paths:

  • A path toward liberal arts based degrees and certificates
  • A STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics) path leading to STEM- based degrees and certificates

 

Course Course Focus Great for Students Who... Time Required
MAT 050

 

This course centers on quantitative reasoning and seeks to develop number sense, algebraic thinking, and critical thinking skills while connecting mathematics to real world applications. The focus is on conceptual understanding and application.

 

  • Want to take math for Liberal Arts (MAT 120)
  • Want to take Statistics (MAT 135), Integrated Math (MAT 155/156) and college level career math courses (MAT 103, 107, 108)

 

4 Credit Hours

MAT 055

 

This course focuses on algebraic reasoning and seeks to develop solid algebraic skill in formal mathematics. The learning outcomes include algebraic skill, conceptual understanding, and application.

 

  • Want to take College Algebra (MAT 121) and the Calculus sequence (MAT 125, 166, 201, 202, 204)
  • Need MAT 121 for specific Degrees with Designation or who need some level of Calculus for a STEM degree.

Non-Credit Courses

Students at the Larimer Campus who are not yet ready for the Math courses for credit have the option to take the Math classes at one of our Centers for Adult Learning. Improve your skills in a relaxed classroom environment with these non-credit classes. One FRCC student commented about these math classes, “My math has greatly improved and I feel more confident and excited to further my education.”
