If you haven’t met the Algebra requirements for application but don’t want to enroll in a semester long class, then ALEKS® may be for you! 


ALEKS is a web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system.  ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course.  ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained.  ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple choice questions.  A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking.

ALEKS also provides the advantages of one-on-one instruction, 24/7, from virtually any web-based computer for a fraction of the cost of a human tutor.

Successful completion of the ALEKS® Algebra course with the final assessment taken at the training center will meet the Algebra requirement for application.  ALEKS is also helpful great for those who need to refresh their math skills.


  1. Stop by the Training Center during business hours to purchase the Class Code.  Cost is $60.  The final assessment is included in the $60 you initially paid for. 
  2. Go to to register using the Class Code above.

The first part of the class is the initial assessment.  There are about 30-35 questions.  If you can’t answer the question, you can pass the question by clicking on “I don’t know.”  At the end of the initial assessment, a pie chart will come up and show how you did.  The course will start from there.

The class is good for 11 weeks and is self-paced.  If you are taking the course to fulfill application requirements, you will need to take a final assessment at our training center upon completion of our course.  To do, you will need to do the following:

  • Print the final pie chart of their course to reflect they have completed all sections of the course.
  • Call us and schedule an appointment for the final assessment (we need 2 days advanced notice).
  • Final assessment will be taken here at the Training center between 8AM-4PM.  Be sure there is ample time to complete assessment.
  • Final assessment must be taken upon completion of the course or before the end of the 11-week course, whichever comes first.
  • The final assessment is included in the $60 you initially paid for.  If you have any further questions, please email us at  -or- call us at (858) 569-6633.
