Academic Progress in Developmental Courses
Effective Fall 1998, the California State University Executive Order 665 requires that first-year and lower division transfer students who are placed into remedial courses as a result of their test scores enroll in and attend the prescribed course(s) as a condition of their enrollment in other courses.
In addition to the mandatory placement, these students must satisfactorily complete their remedial course work within a prescribed amount of time. Students who fail to do so are placed on a leave of absence and are subject to administrative disqualification from the university.
