COC Tests Academic Express Lane

khts_schools_chalkboardA new program could move students through the community college quicker.

Students interested in jump-starting their college careers can enroll in the College of the Canyons LAUNCH program beginning July 6.

Classes are still available in the pilot bridge program that will help students who tested into English 081 and Math 058 to take a five-week intensive course in those subjects along with a counseling and personal development course for a smoother transition into college life.

The summer classes will be held from July 6 to August 7.

Students who successfully complete the program will receive written verification from their instructor to file a pre-requisite challenge and enroll in English 091 and Math 060.

“The LAUNCH program will help students move on to transfer-level courses more quickly,” said Denee Pescarmona, an English instructor at the college.

“By shortening the pipeline to transfer level classes we are helping to ensure that students will go on to meet their academic and career goals,” added Pescarmona.

Free of cost, the classes will be taught by full-time college instructors.

Students must take both the Math and English courses and because the courses are accelerated and of short duration, at least 80 percent of attendance is mandatory.

For more information about the LAUNCH program, contact Community Education at (661) 362-3330.
