Steps to Success

Scaling Systemwide

September 29, 2020
Bruce Vandal, Robert Tucker Todd
In this Steps to Success paper, we learn how the University System of Georgia (USG) is leveraging compelling results from corequisite supports to maintain momentum in their developmental education reforms. Early results from the full-scale implementation of corequisite support have shown upward of 70% of students completing gateway math and English in their first academic year, which is comparable to outcomes for students placed directly into college-level math and English courses. Students placed into corequisite support earned more credits and were more likely to persist than students who started in developmental education.
