College transition courses—focusing on subjects from math and sciences to writing and humanities—are gaining popularity among high schools as a means to boost college readiness as well as mitigate remedial education at the college level. In a national scan that generated a series of reports, the Community College Research Center (CCRC) assesses high school-to-college transition curriculum designs and policies. In addition to identifying curricula that improve math and English skills, CCRC explores ways that students are systematically provided with opportunities to choose college majors and careers during their senior year of high school.
