Self-Paced Math Courses

In a self-paced math course at JCCC, you study independently from a textbook or computer program, using a syllabus as a guide to the sections and exercises that are included in the course. Progress is typically measured by four to six unit exams and a comprehensive final exam, taken in the JCCC Testing Center. Some courses also require computer quizzes or spreadsheets. Although some courses will have online materials, self-paced courses are usually not Internet courses.

You can enroll in a self-paced math course at any time during the year. You can work as quickly as you wish, or take up to nine (9) months to complete the class. Successful self-paced students are highly motivated and goal-oriented, and often complete the course in 2-4 months.

The date of your enrollment will determine the semester for which credit is earned. Enrollment dates are:

  • Fall: July 1 - October 31
  • Spring: November 1 - March 31
  • Summer: April 1 - June 30


To begin the enrollment process
, download the Self-Paced Math Application (a PDF form), and download the course syllabus, available below. Use the syllabus to answer the questions on the application. Then submit the application to your self-paced math instructor.

Your instructor will verify your eligibility to enroll in the course (usually by your placement test score or prior course enrollment). You will also need to complete some other paperwork before being granted permission to enroll.

Enrollment and testing at a distance are also available. Enrollment paperwork can be faxed or mailed. For information about other testing centers in the United States, see the Consortium of College Testing Centers.
