Summer Success

Free Summer Success Programming

Set your sights on success

Summer Success is an opportunity to receive personalized assistance as you sharpen your math skills and work to improve your ALEKS Math Placement Assessment score. Together with your instructor, you will set a goal based on your individual needs and degree requirements. This free program can help you save time and money by refreshing your math knowledge to test out of lower-level courses that won’t count towards your degree!

Summer Success is an in-person program, and when you register you will choose between a morning session from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. and an afternoon session from 1 - 4 p.m.. You’ll attend your chosen session daily on campus to keep what you’ve learned fresh until you achieve your goal.

Summer Success 2024 will be held July 1-19.

Summer Success programming includes:

  • Access to the online ALEKS learning platform where students will have the opportunity to practice algebra skills

Who should participate in Summer Success?

Summer Success is for anyone who aims to improve their ALEKS Math Placement Exam score, which means it is for everyone! 

If you did not take math classes during your senior year in high school, we strongly recommend you participate in Summer Success. It’s been a while since your last math class, but Summer Success can help you recover your lost knowledge.

Your academic advisor may recommend Summer Success to help you place into the math course that is the best fit for you. 

Some students will be required to attend Summer Success. Your University College welcome letter will let you know if the program is required for you, or you can contact us at or (812) 348-7200.
