College Advancement Studies (CAS)
The mission of the College Advancement Studies (CAS) Department is to provide ongoing guidance, advisement, and support that enable developmental students to successfully enhance and master those skills and techniques in reading, writing, and mathematics necessary for success in college-level courses.
CAS provides developmental-level courses in reading, writing, and mathematics; placement is based upon a student's ACCUPLACER exam scores and appropriate advisement. The college requires students to successfully complete these classes before they enter college level courses of study that have specifically-related prerequisites. Credits do not count toward meeting degree requirements.
