Technical Refresher Quarter

This is a sequence of courses developed by the Program Officer and the Academic Associate to better prepare incoming students for entering a technical curriculum.

This course sequence is designed for prospective students who:

  1. have an Academic Profile Code (APC) that indicates a deficiency in mathematics and/or scientific and technical subject matter (i.e., their APC does not qualify them for direct entry to a technical curriculum),

    Or

  2. in completing their review of the prospective student's academic record, the Program Officer and Academic Associate have concluded that sufficient time has expired since the student's most recent college experience and as such, the student would benefit from the Technical Refresher Quarter.

For some students, this may also include courses from the Six-Week Math Refresher.

The refresher sequence is normally twelve weeks in length; however, there are occasions when a student may be assigned two quarters of refresher prior to entering a technical curriculum.

Typical course sequences for refresher quarters are shown in these examples:
