New students will need seventh-grade reading, writing and math skills — plus a high school diploma or GED — to enroll at a Tucson community college next year. Those who don’t qualify can take adult education classes or “learning modules,” but won’t qualify for financial aid. Currently, only 5 percent of students in remedial classes advance to college-level work, says Pima Community College’s president.
