I, too, would like to chime in on the word choice in this email. The
National Association for Developmental Education website (www.nade.net)
has an excellent definition of developmental education. It's not
remedial. While a developmental course might "remediate a student's
deficiencies" the scope of the course should be much broader than that. 
There is an excellent article by David Arendale called Terms of
Endearment which aptly explains the distinction.

Subject: Remediation policy

If your institution offers developmental courses, do you have a policy
on when a student must begin and/or complete their required remediation?
