Developmental Education

"Developmental education is the integration of academic courses and support services guided by the principles of adult learning and development."   (Boylan, 1999)

The field of developmental education supports the academic and personal growth of underprepared college students through instruction, counseling, advising, and tutoring. The clients of developmental education programs are traditional and nontraditional students who have been assessed as needing to develop their skills in order to be successful in college.
