Do You Want to Start Your College Classes Faster?

Do you plan to obtain a transfer degree? Did you place into Pre-College English classes?

If so, you may want to consider taking an Academic I-BEST class!

Through Academic I-BEST, students can take transferable college-level elective classes and potentially earn credit for up to English 101 at the same time!

How does it work?

Academic I-BEST classes are team taught by two instructors, and I-BEST waives the English 101 prerequisite for the elective class. Students enroll in an elective class (also called a Core Distribution Requirement) and an English “Bucket” class. Through the English “Bucket” class, students who begin the quarter in pre-college English (Bridge 90, 93, 115) have the potential to earn credit for up-to English 101 that same quarter.

What classes are offered?

Currently, Academic I-BEST supports the following elective classes:

  • BUS& 101: Introduction to Business
  • CMST& 220: Public Speaking (Starting Winter 2018)
  • HIST& 146: U.S. History I
  • HUM& 101: American Culture

Do you plan to obtain a certificate of completion or a two-year degree? Did you place into Pre-College English classes?

If so, you may want to consider taking a Professional-Technical I-BEST class!

Through Professional-Technical I-BEST classes, students can take college level classes even if they haven’t met the English prerequisites!

How does it work?

Prof-Tech I-BEST classes are team taught by two instructors, and I-BEST waives the English prerequisite. Students enroll in a college-level class at the same time as a Bridge support class.

  • Basic Bookkeeping/Accounting
