The Rock Valley College Mathematics Department offers developmental courses for students who do not meet the prerequisites for college transfer level mathematics courses and various career technical programs.
Taking MTH 096Aor MTH O96S 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.
One-semester course based in real-life applications that satisfies the prerequisite for MTH 115 and MTH 220.
Fast-paced course covering the content of MTH 091, 092, 093, and 094 in one semester.

Geometry is required for students taking MTH 100, 120, 132, or 216 who have not passed geometry in high school. If you earned C's or better in high school geometry, you are eligible for a MTH 097 waiver. Read 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 Dean to get permission to enroll in a developmental math course again.
