The goal for Developmental Studies courses at Fayetteville Technical Community College is to offer a wide range of learning in reading, writing, math and study skills.  After placement assessment, students who show need in one or more areas will be placed in the appropriate Developmental Studies courses ( reading, writing, math and study skills), which are prerequisites to General Education courses. Developmental Studies classes are offered day and evening to accommodate every student who needs them.

Courses are designed to:

•Develop in each learner the skills and attitudes necessary for the attainment of academic, career and life goals

•Ensure proper placement by assessing each learner's level of preparedness for college coursework
