College Placement

Academic Assessment and Placement
English

There are three different ways we determine placement into the correct English and math courses.  They are: (1) ACT scores, (2) High School GPA, and (3) ACCUPLACER, which is a placement test.

  • Placement into ENG 101
  • ACT English sub-score of 18 or above, or
  • HS GPA of 2.75 or higher and A or B grade in English IV, or
  • WritePlacer (Accuplacer) score of 4 or 
  • Placement into ENG 101 and ENG 099
  • ACT English sub-score of 17, or
  • HS GPA of 2.75 or higher AND grade of C in English IV, or
  • WritePlacer (Accuplacer) score of 4, or
  • Placement into ENR 098
  • WritePlacer (Accuplacer) score of 3 or below
