Please Read: Important Information on Mandatory Refresher
A Refresher Course will be required for students that are placed into development based on their TSI Assessment results. Refresher courses are at no cost and provide a second opportunity to move into a higher developmental course or a college-level course. The required refresher must be done prior to enrolling into the Group Advising and New Student Orientation. Please take this into consideration in order to provide enough time to register for classes before registration deadlines.
Refresher Course enrollment will take place in Cypress Campus Center, room 126.
