Tennessee Board of RegentsNashville, TN – A new approach to remediation is dramatically increasing the number of students successfully completing their first college-level English and math courses at colleges and universities in the Tennessee Board of Regents system.

Known as a “co-requisite” approach, the new model places students in supplemental learning support classes while also enrolling them in their first credit-bearing courses. In a 2014 pilot program conducted at nine of the state’s 13 community colleges, the system saw completion rates for college math jump from 12 percent to 61 percent, and from 31 to 64 percent for English.
