The purpose of this guideline is to establish the policy for Degree Credit and Remedial Programming by universities governed by the Tennessee Board of Regents.
- The Comprehensive Education Reform Act of 1984 (CERA) specifies the following goal for public universities:
- "The implementation by public universities of policies which ensure that no credit offered for courses which provide remediation for high school deficiencies will apply toward minimum degree requirements for graduation."
- In compliance with that provision, effective 1985-86 any credit hours awarded for remedial or developmental programming will be net additions to the credit hours required for graduation.
