Co-Requisite Remediation

Southwest offers co-requisite remediation. This means students can complete any needed remediation courses at the same time as they take college-level courses. Co-req remediation pairs a support course with a college-level course for a semester, and students earn six credit hours for the combined courses. Co-req remediation replaces former models that delayed entrance into college-level work for one or more semesters.

Co-req remediation is offered in English, Math, and Reading for students whose ACT (or equivalent) scores point to a need for remediation with college-level work. Some students are enrolled in certificate or degree programs that do not require the General Education courses offered through co-req remediation (college-level math or SPCH 1010). If you are one of these students who require remediation, you must still clear these deficiencies. In such a case, you should contact the Math or Languages and Literature departments for questions.

Note: See the Understanding Your ACT Test Scores page for more information.
