In the non-course-based remediation model, remediation and review happen outside the confines of a semester-based course. The structure and length of non-course-based options varies and includes boot camps, bridge programs, and other non-semester-based programs. Because the learning sequence is completed quickly, non-course-based remediation is a popular model for accelerated learning.
Many institutions are successfully implementing non-course-based offerings for a variety of program types:
- Programs to help students bypass some or all developmental courses
- Programs to help “bubble students” receive additional review before taking, or re-taking, a placement test
- Intervention Programs to help students who are struggling in the developmental sequence.
