Redesigning Academic Preparation

The CSU is committed to providing all students, regardless of academic background, the opportunity and support needed to complete 30 college-level semester units (or 45 quarter units) before beginning their second academic year.

One in four students assigned to developmental education courses did not return for their second year in college.

Only 10% of students who were assigned developmental education courses earned a degree in four years.

In fall 2018, eight times more students passed the redesigned lower-division math courses than in the previous academic year.
