Online Refresher Courses

ONLINE Refresher courses are available by following the links below. These sites provide an overview of math and English/reading with detailed examples and videos to help individuals brush up on their skills and prepare for placement testing. These links are open to anyone looking to refresh their knowledge.

 



Refresher For Re-Testing

For students that have taken the placement test but are not satisfied with their individual results, ‘re-testing’ is an option. Participating in the Refresher Course intervention method will be the student's "fee" for re-taking the placement test. The refresher course program is also open to returning students who may be looking to move into upper level courses. 

In order to be eligible to re-test, a student must enroll in and successfully complete the online Refresher Course. A student must obtain an 80% on the online quiz in the subject matter he or she wishes to re-test in.  A face-to-face Refresher Course will also qualify a student to re-test, when available.
