Starting Fall 2014, all Developmental Math courses are offered as Math Essentials (MTE) – a course structure that allows you to test out of material you already know. Course material is divided into nine separate units, referred to as Modules, and students can work in Math Labs on campus to complete their work.
**********Math Lab Hours for Spring Break, March 9-15**********
Midlothian - Monday and Wednesday, 9am-5pm
Chester - Tuesday and Thursday, 9am-5pm
Both labs closed Friday and Saturday.
Only students in virtual classes are allowed to take their PostTest during Spring Break.
NOTE: This is subject to change if the college is closed on Thursday, March 5.

Open Testing Days ........... To be announced
There will be Open Testing Days for JTCC students who need to complete Developmental Math Modules as prerequisites for college-level math courses. Open Testing Days give JTCC students the opportunity to take a mastery test on a specific Module without being enrolled in an MTE course. Successful completion of a mastery test will award the student credit for that Module, thus reducing the number of required Developmental Math credits. (Note: Successful completion of a mastery test during Open Testing Days will have no effect on a student’s grade in a current or future MTE course.)
You must enter your myTyler username and password to register for Open Testing Days.
