NOTE: Remedial services are instructional activities designed for students deficient in the general competencies necessary for a regular postsecondary curriculum and educational setting. Data through 1995-96 are for institutions of higher education, while later data are for degree-granting institutions. Degree-granting institutions grant associate’s or higher degrees and participate in Title IV federal financial aid programs.
