    Remedial classes are geared to get students from wherever they are to an academic standard commensurate with abilities to complete community college level classes.

    They are not meant to represent junior-high level work.  The goal is to help students with weaknesses in areas to catch up a bit before taking the courses that are required for their degree.  These remedial courses are usually in English and Math, and placement in them is usually based on low ACT or SAT scores in those subject areas.  How they are numbered depends on the school - they are low 100-level courses at my university - and they usually will count only for elective credit at best.  They don't meet the gen-ed requirements in those subject areas.

    Remedial classes in college still require you to have graduated high school or have a GED. 

    They do not have different levels of remedial classes. These classes are for students who have a low ACT/SAT score or who have a low HS  GPA. Most CC will require these student to take a placement test. Most remedial classes are in math and English only. These classes help review the material and try to get the student up to the basic college level for 100 level college classes. They are not teaching you math from 8th grade.

    It’s overwhelmingly community colleges that offer remedial classes. And they are all numbered 99 or below. That means they won’t count for credit.
