Get in Gear
Start College with a fantastic schedule!
Get in Gear (GIG) classes allow first year and other students to fulfill key degree requirements with a 12 credit block schedule. The package includes a study skills course tailored directly to help you with your classes. Students find community and make strong friendships with a GIG schedule.
GIG classes put two subjects and two great faculty together in one block class, with coordinated assignments.

- College Study Skills class (2 credits) teaches study techniques tailored to directly help you with your block class.
- Math 007 is an optional addition for students who did not place into college level math, to help raise your Compass score.
- You will find community and make strong friendships as a GIG participant.
- You will stay on track in college with a GIG Success Coach who knows you personally.
