Students required to complete developmental math will have the opportunity to test out of this requirement at the end of the Math Academy Placement Program. The Skills Review Program will help students with a Math ACT of 19-23 refresh skills needed for College Algebra or Quantitative Literacy. Both programs also include workshops on how to be a successful student and, of course, some fun! When classes begin, you’ll be ready.
