This online non-credit course includes a review of the basic skills needed to begin the study of college mathematics. Based on a diagnostic test, participants will be assigned lessons to address specific mathematical areas. The course is an online, software-driven course with an instructor on hand to provide individualized assistance as needed. Participation in this course requires that students have an ACT-math sub-score of 15-16 or a COMPASS placement domain score of either 27-44 in Pre-Algebra or 18-27 in Algebra. Once enrolled, students will be required to purchase an access code for Pearson’s My Math Test software at a cost of $12. At the conclusion of the course, students may take the COMPASS mathematics test to determine mathematics course placement.
Due to popular demand, the course will be offered on two separate dates during summer 2014. Interested students should sign-up for one session only.
Session 1 Dates: Monday, July 21st-Wednesday, July 30th (weekend included)
Session 2 Dates: Wednesday, July 30th– Friday, August 8th (weekend included)

Post-course Compass Test Fee: $10 (if taken at Nicholls State University’s Testing Center)
Note: At least 10 students must enroll for the course to be held.
