Math Refresher Workshops

Spring 2017 Math Refresher Workshops
 

The Math Refresher Workshops at Utah Valley University are primarily designed for students who have been away from mathematics for two or more years. However, registration is open to any student (including those attending other institutions) wishing to review algebra concepts before beginning further courses.

UVU students whose prerequisite math course was taken two or more years ago will encounter a prerequisite error when attempting to register for subsequent math courses. Math Refresher Workshop registration, together with a C or better in the prerequisite course(s), can be used as temporary placement in lieu of the Accuplacer placement test.

Within one business day after workshop registration, an advisor will process a system override allowing UVU students to register in the desired UVU Spring 2017 math course. Students are responsible for their own UVU course registration; participation in the workshops does not guarantee a seat in the course.

The workshop can be used as placement instead of the Accuplacer one time only; if you do not pass your Spring 2017 MATH course, you will need to either repeat the prerequisite course or establish placement in the course with the Accuplacer placement test.

Students using the workshops for placement must attend every session of their scheduled workshop, arriving on time and actively participating the entire session, in order to maintain placement. Students who do not attend or actively participate every session, who arrive late or leave early, or who are otherwise disruptive to the educational experience of other students will have their prerequisite override revoked and will be immediately Administratively Withdrawn for the Spring 2017 semester MATH course. Placement can be re-established through the Accuplacer exam, and students may then try to re-register for the course; classes will not be reinstated.

The Math Refresher Workshops are course specific and can only be used as placement for the course and semester listed; students should register for the workshop corresponding to their desired Spring 2017 math enrollment.

*Notes for MATH 1090 Refresher Workshop: Please bring a laptop with you to the workshop, as you will be working on computer.  Attending the MATH 1090 refresher workshop does not allow for registration into a MATH 1050 course.

There is a non-refundable $1 cancellation fee for all workshops. It is recommended that students unable to register for their desired Spring course by Januaryt 3, 2017 contact Colin Brinkerhoff at brinkeco@uvu.edu for options.  No refunds will be made after 10am, January 3, 2017.

In the event that attendance at the workshop is not possible, the Accuplacer exam may also be used for placement.

A math advisor will be sent a confirmation email with your workshop registration information and, upon verification of a C or better in the prerequisite course, will process a system override allowing registration in UVU Spring 2017 classes. Please allow one business day for override processing.

 

Spring 2017 Math Refresher Workshop Registration is now closed.
