COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) -- Nearly 40 percent of Colorado high school students who graduated in 2011 needed refresher courses in at least one subject before beginning college-level work.

Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia said Tuesday's report from the Colorado Department of Higher Education shows more needs to be done to help students graduate from college.

According to the Denver Post, the higher education department said the estimated cost associated with remedial courses was about $58 million last year, with students paying about $39 million of that amount.
