'Fast Forward' summer bridge program assists prospective HCC students

Highland Community College will be hosting an open house/informational meeting about the "Fast Forward" summer bridge program from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 12 in room H-201B in the Student/Conference Center. This meeting is for all students interested in improving their placement test scores in writing, mathematics and reading. There will also be guided tours of Highland Community College.

The "Fast Forward" program, consisting of 20 hours of individualized and classroom instruction in writing or mathematics, is taught by qualified instructors to improve basic academic skills and provide test-taking strategies. For students dissatisfied with previous test scores, the program will allow them an opportunity to retake placement tests. The "Fast Forward" program is designed to help students place in higher level college courses, which will enable them to finish their degree faster at a lower cost.

"Fast Forward" is a study skills training for success, with a certificate given after completion at a recognition ceremony. This skill development program will improve work in a chosen subject area. This is an opportunity to gain critical skills in math, writing and reading, and become more familiar with the campus, staff and services at HCC.

The five-week program takes place one afternoon per week beginning May 19 for writing and June 11 for math and reading.

While the program is tuition free, a $10 materials fee will apply. Limited seating is available. Interested students should call Theresa Kepner at 815.599.3678 to pre-register. If you cannot attend this meeting, and still wish to apply for the program, please contact Theresa at 815.599.3678 to discuss alternative registration options.
