USCB to help conduct college-board prep classes

The University of South Carolina's University Test Prep program and the University of South Carolina Beaufort will offer an SAT/ACT test-prep program at the Hilton Head Gateway Campus in Bluffton.

The course will be offered during the weeks of July 11-14 and Aug. 1-4.

The program is intended to help high school students prepare for the SAT and ACT, which typically are important criteria in determining college admission.

Participants will receive 20 hours of on-campus learning, led by a USC test-prep instructor, according to a news release.

Classes will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. The program includes lunch each day, course materials, and interactive online review sessions in September. The cost is $499, with a 10 percent discount for members of the USC Alumni Association and USC faculty and staff at all campuses.
