Placement and Developmental Courses

Some students may enter Haskell without the necessary preparation to take the required General Education courses in English and/or Math. This placement is decided based on SAT/ACT scores or a placement exam. In these cases, once those students have successfully completed developmental classes, they can enroll in the required General Education classes.

Developmental courses include:

ENGL 090 (Basic Composition; 4 credit hours)
MATH 014 (Pre and Introductory Algebra; 5 credit hours)
MATH 100 (Intermediate Algebra; 3 credit hours)
ENGL 090 and MATH 014 will not count toward graduation requirements; MATH 100 will count as an elective.
