The Becker College Gateway Program is designed to give students who need to take a foundations math course a head start before the fall semester begins.
At Becker College, placement in a foundation math course is determined by each student’s skill level assessed during Accuplacer placement testing. While this course does not count toward graduation credit, its completion is required before moving to college level math courses.
Normally, students are placed into this course during the fall semester of the first year. The Gateway Program provides students with the opportunity to complete the required math foundations course online during the summer, before the school year begins. The math course being offered is:
MATF1001: Foundations for College Math (all majors, including Animal Care and Equine Studies)
In the online course, students work at their own pace to complete the course, with online tutorials, assistance from their instructor, and guidance from a peer mentor.
Participation in the Gateway Program is free; however, students are required to purchase their textbook(s) for the class.
