Before taking classes at SPC, the College Placement Test helps you figure out which classes you should take and pinpoints areas where you may need help with your skills.
If you need help, we've got you covered. We have new, more flexible
courses and tools to prepare you. These will save you time, money and
effort. We offer these options to get you ready for college-level work:
While you do not receive college credit for developmental math
you do receive credit
towards full- or part-time student status for purposes of financial aid. Keep
in mind that financial aid only pays up to 30 credits of remedial classes. Also, the grades you receive in developmental classes are now included in the GPA
calculation for determining Satisfactory Academic
Progress for keeping financial aid.
If you only missed certain math skills on the College Placement Test and scored just shy of taking MAT 1033, our Elementary Algebra: My Bridge to Success (MAT 0990) class can put you on the right path. These self-paced classes cover the skills you need to master, not ones you already know. You earn from 1 to 3 credits for this class rather than the 4 you would take in other developmental classes.
From algebra to statistics, SPC’s math courses prepare you for your related four-year university program. Just check
the statewide Common Prerequisites Manual for the classes you will need for your chosen institution's program. Our courses also help you meet the general education requirements
for mathematics for your A.A. degree or A.S. degree. Your options include:
Review our charts to help you decide which math you need.
You can also earn credit for college math by successfully completing certain exams including Advance Placement, CLEP and others. Learn more about how to earn course credit for exams.
If you're still having trouble with developmental math, you can take advantage of SPC's non-credit course alternatives to get you up to speed.
