Students in remedial math can now advance to college-level math without enrolling in a class, affecting GPA or paying endless semesters of tuition for no college credit.
The Preparation for Accuplacer Student Success, or PASS, offers a refresher to increase success in math.
PASS Coordinator Steve Ochoa said the workshops target students who want to test out of one or two levels of developmental math. “This program is computer-based and is a one-week math boot camp. In this program, students will start by taking an assessment test and based on that assessment test, students will be given problems related to their weakest areas in math. At the end of the week, students will take the Accuplacer for math and would either advance or stay at their level of math.”
PASS sessions are 1 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Oct. 7-8 and 5 p.m.-8 p.m. Oct. 9-11 in Room 707M of Moody Learning Center.
Registration is under the web service tab in ACES and is listed under math. Ochoa said the workshop is free, but students must pay $22 for the Accuplacer.
