Green City R-1 School offers two courses through TSU – College Algebra and College Trigonometry. Student cannot audit these courses. You will be expected to pay for attendance in these classes!

 

For questions and to become familiar with  TSU Competency-Based Mathematics you can visit:  institute@truman.edu       The following information has be gained from this site.

 

What is Competency-Based Mathematics? 

The Competency-Based Mathematics Program at Truman State University allows you to explore College Algebra (Truman’s MATH 156) and Plane-Trigonometry (MATH 157) at your own pace.  This course is a computer-assisted program.  Computer-assisted learning methods help you:

  • Master content before proceeding to new topics
  • Retake tests to improve grades and reach proficiency
  • Practice content as much as you need

The Competency-based Mathematics program primarily serves high schools in Missouri looking for alternative approaches to traditional dual-credit delivery systems. 

Competency-Based Mathematics: Registration Packet

Prior to the start of each Competency-Based Mathematics course at your school, you will complete the Registration Packet, students will be given a deadline to complete the Registration Pack along with the following:

  • Step 1. Give the Registration Packet (Registration Packet – College Algebra Fall 2017 Semester  or Registration Packet – Trig  Spring 2018 Semester) to your parent/guardian and read through all of it with them. An example Registration Packet has been included in this GC Dual Credit Communication Pack.
  • Step 3. Your parent/guardian must complete and sign the Memorandum of Understanding.  This form indicates that you and your parents understand what must be paid in order to enroll in the course.
  • Step 4. Choose a payment plan.
  • Step 5.  Sign the Waiver for Disclosure of Account Information Form to allow the Institute for Academic Outreach to share information with your teacher and counselor about payments that are overdue.  This way, they can help you avoid late charges!
  • Step 6.  Give the completed form(s) to your teacher  Remember, these forms include:
    • The Memorandum of Understanding
    • The Waiver for Disclosure of Account Information Form
    • Flexible Payment Plan Enrollment Form
  • Step 7. In the first week of school you will go to http://institute.truman.edu/CBMapplication/, read the instructions, and submit the online application.    
  • Step 8. You will receive an Information Packet (see an example– This has been included in GC Communication Pack) This has specific information about how to log-on to Truman’s network to make your tuition payments, access your grades, and otherwise interact with the University.  Once you’ve received this sheet, it’s time to make your first payment.

Payment Schedule

There are two options for the payment schedule:

1. Standard Payment Plan: Pay the tuition in full by September 15th (Fall) or February 15th (Spring).

The amount you owe will be listed on your Instruction Packet. To pay by check, you must have the student’s Banner ID number from the Instruction Packet. This sheet also provides handy instructions on how to complete an online payment.

2.  Flexible Payment Plan: This plan allows you to make three payments over the course of the term.  Not all schools participate in this plan, so be sure to check with your teacher first, or call the Institute for Academic Outreach if you are unsure.   ** Green City R-1  School does participate in the Flexible Payment Plan.

For students to participate in the Flexible Payment Plan you must complete a Flexible Payment Agreement Form and return it to your teacher to enroll you in the plan.

No matter how you pay you should first go online to check your account balance using the directions provided in your Instruction Packet.  On the Flex Plan, a small amount of interest gets added to your account for the convenience of extra payments. Interest also gets added when you miss a payment.  Once you know your balance, you can pay online or by check.  To pay by check, you will need the Banner ID number from the Instruction Packet, or, to pay online, you will follow the appropriate directions on the Instruction Packet that will guide you through the payment process.

Late Fee

A $75 late fee will be incurred on any account whose balance is not paid in full by November 15 (Fall Semester) or April 15 (Spring Semester).

Interest Charges

Under this plan, interest at 6% per annum (0.5% per month) is charged on the unpaid balance on each bill after the first bill. The sooner you pay, the less interest is charged.

Students may “pay ahead” on the budgeted Flexible Payment Plan if they like.  Interest assessment can be avoided by paying the balance in full on or before the first due date.

Due Dates and Amounts Due on Each

 Fall semester payment due dates and amounts due on each:

  • First Payment Due Date: September 15th – 33% of the total balance due.
  • Second Payment Due Date:  October 15 – 33% of the total balance due
  • Final Payment Due Date: November 15 – Remaining balance due (33% of the total bill plus any accrued interest or late fees – check your balance before paying)

Spring semester payment due dates and amounts due on each:

  • First Payment Due Date:  February 15th – 33% of the total balance due.
  • Second Payment Due Date:  March 15 – 33% of the total balance due
  • Final Payment Due Date: April 15 – Remaining balance due (33% of the total bill plus any accrued interest or late fees – check your balance before paying)

How to make a payment:  You can pay online or by check.  To pay by check, you will need the Banner ID number from the Instruction Packet, or, to pay online, you will follow the appropriate directions on the Instruction Packet that will guide you through the payment process.

 

Truman State University does NOT mail bills to your home. Payments are due on the 15th of each month.

Additional Information

 

 

Withdrawal

Students may withdraw from a Competency-Based Mathematics course at any time before the final day of the course, however, they will not receive credit, a grade, or a refund.

Students who want to withdraw from Competency-Based Mathematics must complete the following three steps:

Step 1. Inform their teacher of high school counselor of their desire to withdraw.

Step 2. Call The Institute for Academic Outreach at 660-785-5384 and inform them of your desire to withdraw.

Step 3. Pay their account balance in full including the tuition and any applicable interest and late fees.  The Institute maintains records of all withdrawal requests.

Important Note: If a student fails to notify the Institute for Academic Outreach and their teacher of their desire to withdraw, the grade they earned, whether they completed the coursework or not, will be denoted on their transcript and will affect their Truman grade point average. If the student did not earn at least 70% on each test or did not complete all of the tests, they would receive a failing grade.

 

Refund

Because the tuition is so steeply discounted and the software (which is not free!) is provided up-front by the university at no cost to the student, refunds and tuition waivers are not available for this program. Please be sure that you are ready to commit to making the payments before you complete the steps to sign up for the program. Before you sign the Responsibility for Payment Form in the Registration Packet, please note that, by signing the document you are acknowledging that you are responsible for all tuition and applicable interest and late fees regardless of whether or not you earn a failing grade or withdraw from the course.  This is the same commitment you would have as an undergraduate student at a college or university.  Families encountering problems with meeting payment deadlines should e-mail staccts@truman.edu or call 660-785-4074.
