Updates to College Prep Math

MATH 097, MATH 098, and MATH 099 were introduced in Fall 2022 as a replacement for MATH 095 College Prep Mathematics

  • While MATH 095 provided some flexibility with individual pacing, these new courses offer instructor-led sessions designed to prepare students for college-level math classes in a single semester. 
  • Students previously enrolled in MATH 095 who have yet to complete the math classes required to complete their degree are encouraged to meet with a Math Coach to determine the best path forward. 


      MATH 097, MATH 098, and MATH 099 classes utilize IncludED.

      • Classes utilizing IncludED provide students with access to course materials as part of tuition through a special course fee. 
      • IncludED fees vary by course and are listed within the descriptions of applicable class sections in Student Planning.  
      • Course materials provided through IncludED are available to students on the first day of class.

      IncludED course materials for students taking college prep math classes include: 

      • interactive preparation materials by topic
      • video lectures on concepts
      • PowerPoint presentations for each section
      • animated explanations and examples
