You may be placed into a developmental math course by the RVC Placement Test. If you're not satisfied with your placement, read about options you may have on the Math Placement page.
Modular Option = Sequence of 8-week courses. Earn two credits each eight weeks for the courses you need.
Includes: MTH 086, 088, 089, 091, 092, 093, 094
If you plan to register for one of the above modular courses, read about Math Module Registration.
Taking MTH 096A or MTH 096S is a way to get through developmental math faster, but you must be willing to put in the extra time and work it takes to be successful in these courses.
1. MTH 096A - Mathematical Literacy for College Students
One-semester course based in real-life applications that satisfies the algebra and geometry prerequisites for MTH 115 and MTH 220
2. MTH 096S - Combined Beginning and Intermediate Algebra
Fast-paced course covering the content of MTH 091, 092, 093, and 094 in one semester

If you placed into MTH 086, 088, 091, or 096S you are required to take MTH 097 before you can enroll in a college-level math course unless you qualify for a waiver or pass a competency test. If you earned C's or better in high school geometry, you are eligible for a MTH 097 waiver. Read our Geometry Options for more information on the MTH 097 course, waiver, and competency test.
After three non-passing grades (D, F, or W) in a developmental math course within a five-year period, you must meet with the Associate Dean to get permission to enroll in a developmental math course again.
