Developmental Mathematics Program

General Description

If you do not meet the eligibility requirements for core math, then you must take developmental mathematics. At UALR, we now offer Corequisite Courses which allows you to take the core math along with the remediation course (a one hour support lab) during the same semester. If you need to review a full semester before entering the connected courses, we now offer Fundamentals Courses to better prepare you. See below for more information.

Corequisite Courses

Cut scores for the corequisite courses are listed below. You must enroll in both for the same semester. You have the same instructor and same grade. You are getting credit for your core math and math remediation all within one semester.

College Algebra Track

IF ACT Math 18-20 OR SAT Math 450-499 OR COMPASS 43-44, then eligible to take:

MATH 1302 College Algebra AND MATH 0102 College Algebra Lab

Quantitative and Mathematics Reasoning Track

IF ACT Math 16-18 OR SAT Math 430-479 OR COMPASS 41-43, then eligible to take:

MATH 1321 Quant and Math Reasoning AND MATH 0121 Quant and Math Reasoning Lab

Foundations/Fundamentals Courses

IF your ACT/SAT/COMPASS is less than what is needed to take the connected courses, then first you must take a full semester of remediation to brush up on pre-requisite skills as follows:

MATH 0332 Foundations of College Algebra unless your score is ACT 18+, SAT 450+, COMPASS 43+

*Upon A, B, or C grade in MATH 0332 Foundation of College Algebra, then you are eligible to take the corequisite College Algebra.

MATH 0330 Fundamentals of Quant and Mathematical Reasoning unless your score is ACT 16+, SAT 430+, COMPASS 41+

*Upon A, B, or C grade in MATH 0330 Foundations of Quantitative and Mathematical Reasoning, then you are eligible to take the corequisite Quantitative and Math Reasoning.
