University's SAT Preparation Course Begins Feb. 28

Texas A&M International University's Office of Continuing Education will offer a "SAT Preparation" course on Saturdays beginning February 28 at the University's main campus, 5201 University Boulevard.

The course, which will include preparatory instruction in math and English, will be taught by A&M International faculty members Dr. Juan Manuel Moran and Dr. Kathleen Pletsch de Garcia.

The class will meet on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. - 12 noon on the following dates: February 28, March 7, 21, and 28, and April 4, 18, and 25.

Tuition and lab fee is $90.

The SAT Preparation course is ideal for high school students and others who need to take the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) for admission into institutions of higher learning.

SAT scores are required for admission into many colleges and universities. A&M International requires SAT or ACT (American College Testing) scores for entering freshman and applicants who have completed less than 30 semester credit hours of transferable college credit.

Interested persons may register for the course in the University's Office of Continuing Education located in the Sue and Radcliffe Killam Library-Administration Building room 332 West.
