Math, English, and Reading Course Sequences
On this page is a listing of beginning course sequences for math, reading, and English. Your placement (or starting point) in each sequence will be determined by either your ACT or COMPASS scores.

A few notes . . .
Developmental courses (courses numbered 0+++) do not count for degree credit; however, they do count in your grade-point average. Also, they are used to determine your enrollment status (e.g., full-time student).

In the course sequences shown below, a grade of "C" or better is required to move from each class to the next. Also, these courses must be taken in sequence, and only one can be taken at a time.

A common admissions requirement for students transferring to four-year institutions is eligibility for or credit in a college-level math. If you plan to transfer to another institution, you should know that MATH 1100 is the most commonly required college-level math course. Students planning to transfer to another institution should consult the transfer institution and/or an RPCC advisor before selecting any college-level math course, especially MATH 1300.

Students completing an associate's degree at RPCC will find that MATH 1100 is an acceptable math course for all RPCC degree programs. MATH 1300 may be used to satisfy the mathematics requirement for the liberal arts and general studies curricula at RPCC.
