Most students will benefit from extra preparation in math during the summer before coming to Clarkson. We have lots of ways for you to get some help. (See our brochure "Calculus at Clarkson".)
Calculus Readiness Assessment
In the spring a diagnostic test is distributed to all incoming first-year students. In excess of 90% of the students respond to this. Based on their individual performance they are advised (by email to students and letters to parents) as to whether they need further practice during the summer.
We are in the process of evaluating those scores and will be sending students recommendations for actions to take over the summer to lead toward college success. In response to COVID-19, we are considering several bridge options and are waiting for finalized NYS guidance to implement those plans. Once those opportunities are in place, we will notify students of those opportunities.
