Pre-College Mathematics Program


Prepare for College-Level Math

Sequence of Classes|After Pre-College Math

Pre-college Math is a series of classes for students who need to strengthen their math foundation before moving into their field of study, such as college-level math or science or a career training program such as nursing. The particular class or classes you may be required to take depend on your educational path (college transfer vs. career training program). It is best to talk with your advisor or faculty coordinator.

Sequence of Classes

Placement into the appropriate math class is based on the results of your math placement test. Placement testing is a required step after applying to the college.
