Accelerated Learning Program

Accelerated Learning Program

The Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) in mathematics allows students still in need of remediation to take a course that is credit-bearing and fulfills a general education requirement.  The goal is to give students the opportunity to complete in one semester what normally takes two. Mathematics classes under ALP are a little smaller than other classes, creating a strong class community and allowing students additional time to work with their instructor. The mathematics courses currently offered under ALP are

  • MA-119/MA-10 ALP. Students in this ALP section will take MA010-Elementary Algebra ALP support course (2-hours per week, zero credits) and MA119-College Algebra (4-hours per week, 3 credits) in the same semester. Typically, this sequence would take two semesters for a total of 9 hours to complete, however the combined ALP course will be completed in one semester in only 6 hours. Note: This is the required pathway for STEM students.
  • MA-321/MA-321 ALP.  Students in this ALP section will take a MA321-Mathematics in Contemporary Society ALP support course (2-hours per week, zero credits) and MA321- Mathematics in Contemporary Society (3-hours per week, 3 credits) in the same semester. Typically, this sequence would take two semesters for a total of 8 hours to complete, however the combined ALP course will be completed in one semester in only 5 hours. Note: These courses cannot be used as a prerequisite for MA-119 College Algebra. This pathway is not suitable for STEM students. 

 

Students with placement test scores within a certain range just below the cut-off for remediation are eligible for the ALP sections. Based on the students intended major, an advisor can guide the student in the correct path.  Only advisors can register students in one of these courses.
