SUSCC offers academic boot camp


Southern Union State Community College saved potential students approximately $13,000 in tuition last year.

That is the amount of tuition that students avoided paying as a result of completing the college’s Academic Boot Camp which helped them test out of developmental classes that otherwise would have been required.

“Boot camp is an intense discipline focused course which helps students improve scores on the placement test and avoid taking developmental courses. Once the Boot Camp Session is complete, students are given the chance to retake the ACCUPLACER test, hopefully improving their score and perhaps placing in a higher level class.

Boot camp sessions are available on the Opelika Campus July 10-20 (5:00-7:00 p.m. CT); in Wadley July 17-27 (5:00-7:00 p.m. CT) and on the Valley Campus July 24-August 3 (5:00-7:00 p.m. ET). The ACCUPLACER can only be taken twice in a year.

The cost for the Academic Boot Camp is $18.50. For additional information please contact Cydney Mathews at cmathews@suscc.edu.
