What is Jump Start?

Jump Start gives you an exclusive chance to place into a higher-level class, getting you more quickly on the road to academic success. The program provides you with a fast-paced review of basic skills in English and Reading and/or Math.  Once you complete the program, you will retake the placement test, in hopes of placing into a higher-level class.

Many students arrive at RCC to discover they must take several semesters of pre-college courses prior to enrolling in college-level classes; often, this is due solely to poor performance on the placements exams.  Think of the time and money you could save!

Who is eligible for Jump Start?

Students who have taken the assessment test and placed into English 60A, English 60B, Math 65 or Math 52 are eligible for Jump Start. The placement information can be found on your Web Advisor page under "Placement Test Summary."
