Evidence continues to mount that providing just-in-time assistance in the form of corequisite support courses is helping students succeed in completing their gateway mathematics courses in their first year,3 which has long been a major stumbling block for students who have been designated as underprepared for college-level work. Houston Community College has taken this reform a step further, crafting and refining a holistic student support structure that increased the number of students making it to and through college- level mathematics.
