Developmental Class Policy

Any students scoring below the minimum accepted standard on our institutional assessment tests will be required to take a developmental course in English and/or Mathematics in order to provide them the skills necessary to be successful in the required curriculum. Students taking developmental courses should be aware that it could result in a fifth semester in order to complete their program requirements. It is the policy of the Morrison Institute of Technology that any student required to take a developmental course that will extend his/her studies by one semester, and that students not having failed any other course, will receive a Developmental Studies Scholarship which will pay the cost of tuition for the fifth semester required to complete their program. A student, who has been placed in a developmental course, may request an audience with the instructional staff in the department of the course that is in question. The department members will use assessment scores, high school transcripts, ACT or SAT test scores, departmental assessments and a personal interview with the student to determine whether placement in the developmental course can be waived. The decision to waiver or not to waiver rests with the reviewing instructors(s).
