Admissions tests and preparation

A preparatory year is a one-year long program that introduces students to the curriculum of a full degree program at a four-year college or university. This program is available in a diverse array of subjects.

What is a preparatory year in admissions tests and preparation? There are a number of programs that are designed to help students prepare for future study. Certain programs focus on one particular subject such as English or other language prep, math prep, or university admission tests prep. Other programs provide comprehensive study in a number of areas for those who are not quite ready to enter college. Classes may include English for academic study, college math, test preparation, basic computer skills, stress and time management, and certain extracurricular activities.

This program is beneficial in a number of ways. Upon completion, students may be ready to meet general entrance requirements, prepared to make sound decisions about a study path, competitive in applying for scholarships, and capable of handling the social and academic demands of a university setting.

The costs associated with this course will vary from one place to another. Before deciding on a school, students should call the institution and ask about financial requirements as well as possible financial aid.

While participating in this curriculum may not lead directly to a career, students develop the necessary academic skills, motivation, and confidence that will help them succeed in their area of study. This, in turn, may result in graduates who go on to work in a variety of careers such as business, health care, the arts, finance, administration, management, and more. Students who took a language prep course may be prepared for international careers.
