The University of Toledo is offering an intensive ACT prep course for high school students from Tuesday, Jan. 26, through Tuesday, March 1, to prepare for April and June test dates.

This customized course consists of 16 hours of test preparation — two days per week for four weeks — and six hours of pre- and post-testing.

Students enrolled will have access to two official retired ACT tests. In addition, students will receive data reports from pre- and post-testing targeting specific areas they need to focus on.

“We are currently accepting registrations for this ACT prep course, which will be held on UT’s Main Campus,” Julie Radwanski, ACT prep course instructor in the UT Learning Enhancement Center, said. “In the past, we have seen test scores improve from the pre-test to the post-test. Thirty-three percent of course participants increased their composite score by three or more points. The highest gain on a composite score was six points. In addition, several participants increased up to seven points in a particular section.”

Students also will receive two textbooks that include test-taking strategies, quizzes, additional practice tests, and a review of skills needed to achieve a high score on the ACT.

The cost for this course is $99.95. Fees include pre- and post-tests with diagnostic feedback, student workbooks, certified instruction, UT parking, taxes, and shipping and handling.

The course will be held on The University of Toledo’s Main Campus in Rocket Hall Room 1530.

The deadline to register is Friday, Jan. 8. Class size is limited. To learn more on how to register, visit
