Summer Preparatory Reviews

Upon completion of the placement exams, some students will be placed into Math and Physics preparatory reviews and/or invited to enroll in a Chemistry preparatory review over the summer. Successful completion of the summer preparatory reviews will positively impact your course placement in MATH, PHYS, and/or CHEM for the fall term. These zero credit reviews are offered free of charge (excluding some potential costs for course materials) and will run for six weeks starting in mid-July. Each review is administered online in Blackboard Learn and can be completed at your own pace prior to their close date in late August.

Below is a list of various summer preparatory review offerings:

Elements of College Algebra: This review is equivalent to MATH 105. For traditional Engineering students, successful completion of this review will place you into MATH 116 in the fall term. For Construction Management and Engineering Technology students, successful completion of this review will place you into MATH 110 in the fall term.

Elements of Precalculus: This review is equivalent to MATH 110. Successful completion of this review will place you into MATH 121 in the fall term.

Preparatory Physics for ENGR Studies: This review is equivalent to PHYS 100. Successful completion of this review will place you into PHYS 101 in the winter or spring terms (depending on math placement).

Preparatory Physics: This review is equivalent to CHEM 111. Successful completion of this review will place you into CHEM 101 in the fall term.
