Limited Capacity seats available

The College Transition Center was created to serve the students in DMA 010, DMA 020 and DRE 096. These courses had low passing rates and students were spending a great deal of financial aid on these courses and not moving forward. The barriers that were identified that were impacting student success were length of course, limited career-related activities, number of days served, and limited individual support. In order to address these concerns, courses were moved away from traditional FTE earning programs to a new program under College and Career Readiness. eliminated the cost of the course to students.

Instruction and skill mastery are driven by Hawkes Learning. In addition, instructors engage students in small group learning activities based on their chosen field of study throughout the course. Students are learning and have made excellent progress.

By eliminating the 4 week modules and the pressure some students feel under the short time limit, students have the time as well as the reduced pressure to build a stronger foundation in math and to find success in the early DMA courses.

One semester of results shows a drastic increase in the passing rate for 010 and 020, positive student feedback, and success in subsequent math courses. There have been bumps in the road but the success is worth the added effort. Let us show you and your school how to improve understanding and the overall success rate for many of your students at your school.
