This boot camp is designed to assist students who fell a few points shy of passing TSI reading, writing, math or any combination thereof.  Others who feel a pre-semester refresher would be helpful are also welcome.  

Each of the courses above is designed to elevate students to the next academic level.  Except for NCBO Writing, each discipline offers two levels: one to enter the highest developmental education course, and one to enter college level coursework.  TSI scores will determine which level the student is qualified for.  Those who are not TSI-liable but only want a refresher will enroll in the second level - that which leads to college level coursework. 

Completion of the camp does not guarantee permission to enroll in credit-bearing courses – only a passing score on the exit exam will suffice.  The exams are designed for in-house use only and do not transfer to any other college campus.

The fee for each section is $50 to cover course materials.

Fall NCBO Writing is a non-course based option for students who need extra support in reading or writing. It is scheduled according to instructor/student availability and consists of no fewer than 10 hours of directed guidance. Call 432-552-3302 or email for further information or to arrange a schedule. 

This option is encouraged for students whose TSI results were close to the cut score for developmental course coursework in reading or composition.  

Students who feel they need a little extra support due to an extended absence from formal schooling may find this opportunity particularly helpful.

Math NCBOs are also on the course schedule and may be elected during the enrollment process.

There is no fee for the non-course based offerings; however, students should anticipate purchasing access codes to online skills platforms.
