If you are a 2012 high school graduate or a new college freshman, Collin College invites you to revitalize your math skills to better prepare you for next semester. And, you can do so for free -- by applying to the 2012 Math Summer Bridge Program.

The free math refresher course offers you the chance to work with top professors this summer so that you can start the fall semester at the top of your game. 

Collin College officials recommend the math program for students who need to get ready for their first college math class or boost their college math placement test scores.

Details are as follows:
