Save time and money with a student-friendly refresher math class.

Placing out of just one course in the math sequence can save you up to $700 and an entire semester of course work!

For only $99, students or community members who wish to brush up on core mathematical principles or improve their math course placement are encouraged to join us for an eight-session Math Boot Camp. Math Boot Camp, designed and led by SMC math faculty, reviews mathematical concepts from basic arithmetic through pre-calculus, with topic coverage customized to meet individual students' needs. This program culminates with students taking SMC's math placement exam to determine proper course placement.

Please note: Math Boot Camp is NOT intended to be a math course! This intensive review is intended for highly-motivated students attempting to improve or more accurately reflect their math knowledge for class placement purposes.

A full-semester math course can range in cost from $500 - $700 (plus textbook costs!) and take up to 15 weeks to complete. Math Boot Camp has the potential to save students hundreds of dollars and to allow them to complete their required math pathway quicker.​

Math Boot Camp is also great for standardized test prep!
