Transitional Educational Courses
Students will be placed in transitional education courses if the TSIA2 exam indicates a need for review or development of entry-level college skills. Brazosport College offers the following transitional education courses.
Mathematics Courses (Algebra/Algebra Pre Cal Pathways): MATH 0471 Foundations of Mathematics , MATH 0372 Foundations of Algebra , MATH 0114 College Algebra Corequisite

Students will receive grades in these courses as in other courses, but the grades do not affect grade point averages. Students progress through the transitional sequence by passing the course to qualify for the next level.
