Not sure if reading classes are right for you? Take the ACCUPLACER test through Testing Services to find out.

RDG 096 - Academic Reading is required for students with ACCUPLACER test scores that show they need support, however, the course is available for any student who wishes to become a more efficient academic reader.  This class helps with vocabulary, note-taking, annotating, summarizing, inferring, analyzing and processing academic text.

RDG 127 - College Reading Skills is an elective, college-level course with a focus on more advanced reading skills.

If you need to drop a required reading class, you should talk to an academic counselor.
