Blue Ridge Community College provides an opportunity for students to strengthen their basic educational background. Through a series of courses, instruction is provided to help the student overcome educational deficiencies that would likely prevent him/her from succeeding in an associate degree or diploma program. Developmental courses are offered in the areas of reading and vocabulary development, grammar and composition, keyboarding, biology, chemistry, and mathematics.
Incoming students are given a series of pre-enrollment placement tests to determine if any of these courses will be prerequisites to their related coursework. Students should take prerequisites in their first semester of enrollment if possible. Certain programs require that prerequisite courses be completed prior to fall enrollment.

|BIO 090||Foundations of Biology|
|CHM 092||Fundamentals of Chemistry|
|CIS 070||Fundamentals of Computing|
