Schedule of Classes and Registration Procedures
You may register for the Math 008 Algebra Tutorial (preparing students and meeting the prerequisites for Math 105, Math 108, or Math 125) using PatriotWeb registration.
If the semester's "add date" has passed you must call the Registrar's Office to enroll (703-993-2441).
After enrolling in the Algebra Program, Math 008 should appear on your Blackboard Course List. Once you have Math 008 on your blackboard, you can find all the information you need in the Getting started section of the Blackboard page. You can start working on the program right away.
You have up to six months to complete the program.
The program consists of assignments and scheduled comprehensive checks administered through ALEKS, which is an individualized, adaptive learning tool. To complete the algebra program, you will need to get a score of at least 85% on the on-campus final comprehensive check. You will be able to take this final test after you have mastered 95% of the ALEKS content. Students can take the final comprehensive check as many times as needed.
The final test will be administered in the Math Testing Center.
After you pass the final, please submit a course override request for the class you are trying to enroll in.
Students will not receive college credit for these programs.
The non-refundable registration fee for MATH 008 is $60.
In addition, students need to purchase access to online course material that costs approximately $75. Please refer to the course blackboard for more details.
All fees are NON-REFUNDABLE and subject to changes.
If you are planning to enroll in Math 106, Math 110, Math 111 or Stat 250, you don't need to take the Math Placement Test or complete the Math 008 tutorial. If you would like to have the opportunity to review basic Algebra concepts before taking any of these courses, you can choose to enroll in Math 008 and complete as much as the tutorial you think that you need. In this case you don't need to take the final comprehensive check.
If you need more information, please contact Brent Gorbutt.
