Where Do You Want to Go?


Initial Planning



After extensive communication with instructors who have successfully implemented a corequisite course, we have found that common implementations typically follow one of the three models below.


Each of the following models can be designed with flexibility to allow for the following characteristics:


  • One instructor or two or two instructors
  • One grade or separate grades for credit-bearing and prerequisite content

Embedded Implementation Model

  • Prerequisite content is taught just-in-time and is followed by the credit-bearing content. This process repeats over the course of the semester. ​
  • The only students enrolled are corequisite students. ​

Stacked Remediation Model

Prerequisite Content
Credit-bearing Content
  • Prerequisite content is frontloaded​.
  • Students in the corequisite are in a separate course from students placing into credit-bearing course.

Supplementary Implementation Model

  • Prerequisite content is taught just-in-time. ​
  • Corequisite students are comingled with students taking only the credit-bearing course, but take an additional support course.
