12 Developmental Education Strategies 1008.02 Definitions Definitions (1) “Developmental education” means instruction through which a high school graduate who applies for any college credit program may attain the communication and computation skills necessary to successfully complete college credit instruction. Developmental education may be delivered through a variety of accelerated and corequisite strategies and includes any of the following: (a) Modularized instruction that is customized and targeted to address specific skills gaps. (b) Compressed course structures that accelerate student progression from developmental instruction to college-level coursework. (c) Contextualized developmental instruction that is related to meta-majors. (d) Corequisite developmental instruction or tutoring that supplements credit instruction while a student is concurrently enrolled in a credit-bearing course.
13 Description of Costs & Financial Aid US Department of Education administered financial aid (i.e. Pell) will cover optional developmental education coursesUS Department of Veteran Affairs administered veterans benefits will not cover optional developmental education courses* Colleges should provide a summary of costs for each strategy in plan

Florida College System institutions shall use placement test results to determine the extent to which each student demonstrates sufficient communication and computation skills to indicate readiness for his or her chosen meta-major. Florida College System institutions shall counsel students into college credit courses as quickly as possible, with developmental education limited to that content needed for success in the meta-major.
