Baruch College Department of Mathematics | Mathematics Summer Immersion Program


Mathematics Summer Immersion Program

The Mathematics Undergraduate Summer Immersion Program is open to new Freshmen and incoming Transfer students whose mathematics placement is below college level or slightly deficient. It provides an opportunity for students to take courses which, if successfully completed in the summer, will advance their mathematics standing. In many cases, to a college level math course.  Continuing students may also enroll in this program through SAAC.

Students who need to take these courses will be contacted by the college and will be provided registration information. This is a tuition-free program (students are required to purchase the text).  Students who enroll in this program may not take any courses in the second summer session program.

The program begins just after the July 4 holiday, concludes six weeks later in mid-August, and is offered in both the day and evening. The day program includes regular classroom instruction, tutoring and computer assisted instruction. The evening component has longer classroom instruction as it does contain tutoring or computer assisted instruction.

FSPM 0121: This course is identical in content to CSTM 0120 and covers topics in intermediate algebra. Students placed into this course have demonstrated a knowledge of elementary algebra. Students completing this course may register for MTH 1030 – College Algebra, in the fall.

FSPM 1031: This is a college algebra course, identical in content with MTH 1030. Students completing this course may register for MTH 2003 – Precalculus with Elements of Calculus, in the fall.

Students who successfully complete FSPM 0121 receive exemption from CSTM 0120 and may register for MTH 1030 in the fall.

Continuing Students who previously failed MTH 1030 and pass FSPM 1031 will have their grade replaced with a P and the college’s “F” policy will be applied. There will be no credit for the previously taken course and a comment will be placed on each student’s record to explain the application of the “F” policy without the repetition of the same course.
