Reading Department

The reading department offers introductory and college level reading classes to help you improve your reading skills.

  • To find out if you need to take these courses, you will need to take the COMPASS assessment test. This test is done by Testing Services
  • RDG 126 is a mandatory class for students who test into it with the COMPASS test. This class includes work on basic reading and study skills for college success.
  • RDG 127 is an elective, college-level course which focuses on higher level critical reading skills.

If you need to drop a required reading class, you must drop all other classes you might be in. You can talk to an academic counselor to ask for permission to drop only the reading class.
