School of Developmental Education

In fulfilling the mission of Salt Lake Community College as a comprehensive community college with an “open door” admissions policy, the Developmental Education Department must, as a part of an educational continuum, provide for the needs of two groups of students: 

  • Those requiring and/or desiring work in pre-college level competencies, such as reading, writing, math, and English-as-a-second-language;


  • Those requiring and/or desiring to improve their college experience through learning enhancement activities, such as speed reading, reading comprehension, and study skills, as well as personal and career development.

The members of the Developmental Education Department, are committed to helping students succeed in college programs and college-level courses and to helping them prepare for lifelong success.
