ComFit Learning is our new online supplemental instruction component that is individual to the student and available 24/7. Within ComFit, you will have a chance to build your writing, reading, and mathematic skills on a personal level. There is no rush with ComFit, you can work at your own pace, in your own space, and truly learn the material. No matter the learning type, the program will explain the same concept in various ways to be sure that you understand the material. Once you have taken 3 separate assessments, the program will suggest concepts that you may need to work on. You will also be given the opportunity to choose concepts that you personally know that you need practice with. It is very important that you seriously take your time on the assessments in order to gain the maximum benefits of this program.
