Some of this year's college freshmen class seem to be having a tough time in school.
The executive director of the Colorado Commission on Higher Education says about 27 percent of students who graduated from a Colorado high school last year now need remedial help in college.
Their struggles are costing taxpayers about 20 million dollars and an additional 8 million in tuition for their families.
Although many of them may have had good grades in high school, the director says that's not a good indicator of how well they would do once they get into college. He says the best predictor of success is the student's course list.
