Frequently Asked Questions
Developmental Mathematics (DMA) classes are a key component of College of The Albemarle’s (COA) open door admissions policy, offering an opportunity to improve your math and problem-solving skills, and increase your chances of success in the curriculum of your choice.
Prior to summer 2012, DMA consisted of MAT 060, MAT 070 and MAT 080. DMA now consists of eight modular classes: DMA 010 through DMA 080. Each class is one credit hour.
DMA 065 will be offered over a two-week session in the summer semesters only. DMA 065 is a combination of material from DMA 060, DMA 070 and DMA 080, and can be substituted for those three DMA class.
You’ll need to take the COA placement tests to determine which classes may be required to complete a program of study. Be sure to utilize the available study resources to improve your performance on the placement tests.

You’ll automatically be dropped from all sequential classes in which Developmental Math was a prerequisite. This will reduce your number of credit hours for the semester and could affect your financial aid unless you re-enroll in additional DMA credit hours.
By re-enrolling, you are repeating a DMA class and may be subject to tuition fees if you didn’t originally enroll in four DMA classes for the term. If you wish to re-enroll in a DMA class and other classes in the sequence, first consult with your DMA instructor, advisor, or an advisor in Student Success and Enrollment Management (SSEM) on or before the schedule adjustment date. You should re-enroll in the sequence for the remaining sessions.
It’s your responsibility to see an advisor to re-enroll. You won’t be allowed to add classes once the new session begins, or be added to internet sections after the first day of the session.
