What is College and Career Ready?

College and Career Ready Center Banner

The level of preparation a student needs in order to enroll and succeed—without remediation—in a credit-bearing course at a postsecondary institution that offers a baccalaureate degree or transfer to a baccalaureate program, or in a high‐quality certificate program that enables students to enter a career pathway with potential future advancement.

Success is defined as completing the entry‐level courses or core certificate courses at a level of understanding and proficiency that makes it possible for the student to consider taking the next course in the sequence or the next level of course in the subject area or of completing the certificate.
