A Non-Course Based Option designed as a co-requisite, one credit lab to first-year math courses is structured as a "homeroom". CRLA tutors are embedded in the math labs to provide support to enrolled students. In fall 2016, 91 students enrolled in these labs and 88% passed their math course.

This presentation will describe the current NCBM model that has been successful at TAMUK, a HSI, as well as the evolution of the program design. Many of the students enrolling in our NCBM courses are first generation students and/or Latino students, and this model for transitional coursework has increased the passing rate of credit based math courses by 14% since fall of 2015. Participants in this session will understand how the Non-Course Based Option is designed as a co-requisite, one credit lab to first-year math courses. The session will explain the benefit of having an embedded tutor in the lab, and present the data gathered over the last 2 years to support the success of the model.
