ELM Prep Workshop Info and FAQ

I didn't place into a college-level math class?!

1. Why do I need to attend an ELM Prep workshop?

Every year students are placed into math classes below their skill level due to poor scores on the Entry Level Mathematics exam. The ELM prep workshops are designed to help you improve your score on the ELM exam. The goal of the ELM Workshop Project is to see more students place correctly into the course best suited for their needs and success in meeting their educational goals.
