Fall 2017 English Refresh Workshops
Register for an English Refresh Workshop
Refresh is a workshop designed to refresh students’ skills, build their confidence and coordinate re-test efforts into higher level English courses. Each workshop will take place over the course of 3 days.
Goal: Re-test and place into the next level of the math or English sequence.
Who can apply: Students who have taken the Matriculation assessment exams and placed into basic skills courses including: English 300, 390, and 200 are eligible to apply. Acceptance into the program is determined by application (available in March).
Where: All workshops will take place at Saddleback College.
When: Workshops will begin in June (specific dates are posted below).
Why: Save time! Save money!
One basic skills English 200 course lasts 16 weeks and students will be required to spend up to 12 hours per course including homework and studying time.
Parents and students will save money. California community college courses cost $46.00 per unit. A four unit English 200 course costs $184 and new textbooks averaging between $100.00- $130.00.
Only 10% of students enrolled in basic skills courses successfully complete transfer level courses. Students who test into higher level courses have higher success and transfer rates.
