ACT/SAT Prep Courses

        The SIUE Office of Educational Outreach will be offering ACT and SAT prep courses during the Spring semester 2019 and we would like to invite your students to attend. We understand that the state has switched to administering the SAT, but some schools/students are still participating in the ACT Test and we are happy to offer both opportunities to your students. We will offer 1 ACT session and 2 different SAT sessions for students to choose from. The information for the courses is as follows:

ACT ReviewThis in-depth ACT preparatory course reviews and teaches concepts needed to prepare for the ACT. It condenses lessons into six sessions which begin with a pre-test to assess the group’s strengths and weaknesses. The sessions are then individualized to effectively prepare for the test. Please bring a calculator and No. 2 pencil to each session.
