What High School Preparation is Suggested?

It is important for students to build a strong academic foundation in high school whether they plan to pursue education at a community college, college of technology, or university. When students decide to enroll at MSU Billings, they will be required to take placement tests to assess skill levels in math, English, and Reading. An academic advisor will recommend a class schedule based on these skills. Refresher classes are available if students need them. If students need to refresh their skills, it is necessary for success, but can cost extra time and money. The best way to avoid this is for students to take all of the necessary courses in high school. One strong recommendation is that high school students take four years of mathematics. This will help them to learn as much as possible and better retain the material as they transition from high school to college. Click on the links below to learn more.
