Taking developmental reading and writing classes at Mountain View is an affordable way to get started on a path to a brighter future. Our faculty draw on their knowledge and experience to ensure student success.
Students who wish to enroll in courses that require college-level reading or writing skills must take assessment tests in these areas. For students who do not demonstrate college readiness on the assessment tests, many levels of reading and writing developmental courses are offered to enable them to complete the prerequisites for college-level courses and to satisfy Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requirements.
Developmental education courses provide students with the skills and confidence necessary to succeed in college-level courses, and they are listed in the catalogue as "DREA" for developmental reading and "DWRI" for developmental writing. Developmental courses are numbered 0100 and below. These courses carry institutional credit but do not count toward a degree or certificate.
