Academic Assessment and Placement

Math Diagram (Fall 2018 Only)

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.

English:
  • 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 5 or more
  • 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

 

Mathematics:
  • With an ACT math sub-score of 20 or higher, math placement is based on using the chart below and reviewing the high school transcript to determine the highest level of math successfully completed (“C” or higher) to place the student  accordingly:

 

 Highest Math Course (any year, C or higher)  Course Placement
 Calculus  MTH 125
 Precalculus MTH  MTH 113
 Algebra II  MTH 110 (AA); MTH 112 (AS) if not sure, then MTH 112
 Algebra I  MTH 100
