Remedial Coursework for
High School Seniors

 2013 FEE PROGRAM | CONTACT

Remedial coursework for high school seniors is intended to assist students in reaching their goal of being fully prepared to enter into the workforce or a postsecondary institution following high school graduation. Secondary or postsecondary credit may not be earned for this type of coursework.

2013-14 School Year

Students who successfully complete the remedial coursework program while in high school are able to avoid remedial coursework at South Dakota’s Technical Institutes and Board of Regents institutions and with direction from their university admissions, register directly into credit-bearing college-level, saving both time and money.

Information for Students

The remedial coursework program is intended for students with modest skill gaps (1-2 points below an institution’s ACT benchmark).

Students must register for the remedial coursework program through their local school district. Payment for the coursework is required at the time of registration either by the student or the school district.

Remedial coursework is available for English, reading, and mathematics in three separate timeframes: 10 weeks, 6 months, or 12 months. Costs for the coursework range from $125-$175 depending on the timeframe selected.

Reimbursement for Cost of Coursework

Beginning July 1, 2013, state funding is available to cover the cost of approximately 800 course enrollments. High school seniors enrolled in public school districts who complete the remedial coursework during their registered time frame are eligible for reimbursement for the full cost of up to three separate courses.
