Courses for Enrichment and Acceleration

Recognizing there is no one pathway to success, Center for Talent Development (CTD) aims to provide motivated students with a variety of program options. CTD programs have different enrollment requirements depending on the type of courses and level of rigor.


CTD offers several programs designed to enrich, as well as advance, a student's academic experience. Read about eligibility tiers and corresponding application materials.

Grades and Evaluation

At the completion of most CTD courses, students receive a performance evaluation prepared by their instructor. This evaluation includes a rubric that rates learning skills– grades, credit, and service hours earned, if applicable; and recommendations for future study. CTD also provides transcripts and course syllabi.
