Who Is Required To Take DE?

Who Is Required To Take DE?

If a student's scores on the basic skills assessment indicate that a student would be
better prepared by taking a DE course prior to enrolling in a college-level course in
a related field, the student must enroll in the DE course and complete the sequence
before enrolling in college-level courses in that field of study.

Collin requires that students demonstrating a need for remediation in reading, writing
or mathematics complete the appropriate sequence of DE courses in consecutive semesters,
although the student is not required to attend Collin College during summer semesters.

For students who do not place at college-level courses in all three Texas Success Initiative (TSI)  
areas of reading, writing and mathematics, a meeting with an Academic Advisor is required as well as mandatory course registration in EDUC 1300 Learning Frameworks.
