Math STEP Workshop
If you have the STEP Workshop Hold on your student account, you are required to complete a math refresher workshop before coming in for your Math Placement appointment. You will not be able to take math placement until after the workshop is completed. The STEP Workshop is available for all students to complete in prepraration for the Placement test, but is only required if there is a STEP Hold on the student's account.
The STEP Workshop is available to be completed online. If you wish to complete the STEP Workshop in person, please contact Kristie Gilmore at (219) 981-5691 or [[krlgilmo]].
