Students will complete the Accuplacer test through Testing and Placement. The test will determine which of the eight DMA courses students need to take in order to enhance their math skills before proceeding to college-level courses.

Program Benefits:

  • Each course takes four weeks to complete.
  • Four courses can be completed in a semester.
  • All eight courses can be completed in two semesters.

Students must attend the first session of the course they are enrolled in.
