Developmental Education

TSTC Marshall provides developmental education for students who need assistance with basic academic skill review, according to the Texas Success Initiative Plan filed with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The Developmental Education program enhances these basic skills through personalized goals and a variety of instructional methods to ensure college-level coursework success for students. Developmental education services include preparation for collegiate-level studies and training in the basic skill review of reading, writing, and mathematics for each program's entry-level standards.

Developmental education courses are not counted as credit toward graduation. However, they are used along with the credit courses for determining course load, scholastic standing, term honors, and satisfactory academic progress for financial aid.
