Rock Valley College

Reading Courses

Developmental courses in reading are intended for those students who are not quite ready academically for college level courses. To meet the demands of college level reading, Developmental Reading courses offer opportunities for students to build background knowledge, improve vocabulary, and build study skills and test taking abilities. Upon successful completion, students will be ready for college-level courses. 

Placement in Developmental Reading courses is determined by placement testing.
