If your PERT (Postsecondary Education Readiness Test) scores are low, you have to take developmental education classes BEFORE you can take college-level classes. Developmental education classes increase the cost and time you spend in college!
This summer, take our PERT test preparation classes in math, reading or writing. Each class is just 15 hours for one week. Classes are conveniently offered every week this summer.
Are you required to attend test prep?
We strongly recommend these test prep classes for incoming high school graduates starting this fall that need to increase their PERT scores and course level placement.
If your PERT score is listed below, in one or more subjects, you will need to attend a boot camp:
If your PERT score is:
50 to 95
You will NOT be able to register for fall classes unless you complete a test prep class and re-take the PERT before Friday, August 23.
50 to 83
50 to 89
Reasons you should take a PERT test prep class:
Test prep is proven to help you improve or place out of remedial classes!
Each summer class is only 15 hours a week—three hours a day, Monday to Friday.
You will receive instruction targeted to your needs.
You will re-take the PERT at the end of the class.
You will NOT be able to register for fall classes without completing boot camp, if your PERT score is listed above.
Space is limited. Classes start each week from June 17 to August 19.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW
- The $26 registration fee includes all the costs for the class and retesting.
- Math test prep students must bring their own headphones or ear buds to every class to listen to the videos included in the program. Standard ear buds that can be used with a computer, IPOD or other media player are ideal.
-If a student wants to drop a test prep class he/she has registered for, he/she is required to drop the course by the first day of class to get a full refund. Since all test prep classes start on Monday, a student must drop the course no later than (5:00pm) on Monday. Full refunds will not be available after (5:00pm) on the first day of class.
-If a student does not show up for the first day of class (Monday), he/she will be removed from the course roster. This student will have 24 hours (Tuesday at 5 pm) to be able to register for another boot camp course without having to pay the course fee again. This may be done only once. The student will need to call the School of Continuing Education and Professional Development to register for a different course. If a student does re-register for another course by 5 pm on Tuesday, he/she will not have to pay the $26.00 course fee again. If the student does not contact Continuing Education to re-register for another course by Tuesday at 5pm, he/she will lose the $26 course fee and must pay it again to register for another course.
