Remedial education refers to academic courses in higher education intended to improve the basic skills of new or returning college students, so that they are adequately prepared for college-level work. These basic skills courses are typically non-credit courses. This issue brief discusses how students are identified for remediation, the number involved, the cost, and recent innovations intended to reduce the incidence of remediation at higher education institutions in Colorado.
