is a low cost alternative to remedial (developmental) math classes at Bronx Community College. Our program assists incoming CUNY students whose scores on the CUNY Assessment Tests indicate that they would benefit further instruction in Math.
Our 8-week program involves pre-college math instruction that focuses on complex topics in algebra and helps students maximize their understanding through in-depth study of core math concepts in an interactive and supportive learning environment. In addition, students attend a weekly college-readiness seminar to help them develop their academic identity and learn about college structures and campus resources.
Students pay a low cost of $35 to enroll for the entire 8 weeks, which includes the cost of instruction and weekly Metrocards. This allows our students to reserve their limited financial aid money for degree credit courses at BCC. Enrollment in Math Start is voluntary, but participants must meet certain attendance requirements and follow-up with their Advisor to discuss their academic progress throughout the 8 weeks.
Enrollment in Math Start at Bronx Community College enables students to save their financial aid for credit-bearing classes. In just 8 weeks, Math Start students can save over $2000 in course fees and complete up to one year’s worth of remedial coursework.
