  • Students pay for 1.5 credits for SKC 80 and 1.5 credits for SKC 85, plus the cost of ALEKS.
  • The internet-based ALEKS computer program is used for this course and students must purchase the program subscription.

Enrollment

Online enrollment is available through MyTMCC.

  • Sign in to MyTMCC and click on "Student Center" then click on "Search" or "Search for Classes".
  • Enter the term you are registering for, then enter SKC for course subject, and click on "Search".
  • Search results will display SKC 80 and SKC 85. Select the section with the 2-hour lab that fits your schedule. You will meet at the same time on the same day every week.
  • You are not required to register for both courses; however, it is highly recommended that you enroll in SKC 80 for the first 7-week session, and SKC 85 for the second 7-week session. This will hold your spot in the course for the second half of the semester.
