Developmental Courses at SJSU


After completing the Reflection on College Writing, you may choose to enroll in English 1A, the standard GE writing course that satisfies the Area A-2 written communication requirement. Enrolling in English 1A does not change your remedial status; all policies pertaining to remedial students still apply to you until you have passed English 1A.

ENGL 1AF and ENGL 1AS (Stretch English)

After completing the Reflection on College Writing, you may choose to enroll in English 1AF and 1AS, a two-semester course sequence that covers the content and learning expectations of English 1A at a slower pace. Students who enroll in English 1AF in the fall must continue into English 1AS in the spring; together, these courses complete the developmental English requirement and satisfy the Area A-2 written communication requirement. 

Note: Both semesters of English 1AF and 1AS confer baccalaureate credit; however, students earn elective credit in the fall and English credit in the spring.



Math 1005A and 1005B  

Students who do not satisfy the ELM requirement before the fall of their frosh year may enroll in a two-semester course sequence in remedial mathematics, MATH 1005A (fall) and 1005B (spring). These courses cover the essential concepts of beginning and intermediate algebra. Together, they satisfy the remedial math requirement and prepare students for GE math courses that satisfy the Area B-4 requirement in quantitative reasoning.

UNVS 1015A and 1015B/15C StatWay (currently offered only in the fall)
Statway is a special program open to students in specific majors who have an ELM score of 32 or less and an EPT score of at least 137. UNVS 1015A (fall) offers an introduction to elementary statistics. 

UNVS 1015B/15C StatWay (currently offered only in the spring)

UNVS 1015B and 1015C are open only to students who receive credit 1015A. Credit in UNVS 1015B completes the remedial math requirement; a passing grade in 1015C completes the remedial math requirement and satisfies the Area B-4 requirement in quantitative reasoning.
