|Description:||The CUP program prepares you for college or university in a supportive and exciting learning environment using current online course management technology. You will use effective learning strategies to acquire academic skills in English, mathematics, and computer technology and you will make a plan: an educational and a career plan. Students may start the program in either September or January. The program is full-time (Monday to Thursday, 10:30 to 3:30) for 15 weeks. Students should begin the application process at least one month prior to the start of classes.
The program makes extensive use of computers. In addition to the Computer courses, the English, Math and Career Planning / Study Skills courses use computers for large portions of the course content and use online videos accessible anytime and through a variety of devices (e.g. computers, iTouch, iPhone, etc). Learners do not need strong computer skills to enter the program, just the desire to improve their skills using computers. There is a computer lab dedicated to the program, and there is one computer for each student. These are instructor led classes supported by web-assisted technology. Attendance and participation are keys to student success. The maximum class size is 20 students.
