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 or Next Generation, which are placement tests.

  • Placement into ENG 101 and ENG 099
  • 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 or Next Generation) 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 or Next Generation) score of 4, or
  • Placement into ENR 098
  • WritePlacer (Accuplacer or Next ion) 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 (ā€œCā€ 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
  • Placement into MTH 098
  • Accuplacer Elementary Algebra (EA) score of 20-49 or Next Generation score of 200-242
  • Placement into MTH 100 and MTH 099
  • ACT math sub-score of 17, or
  • HS GPA of 2.75 or higher and C in Algebra II, or
  • Accuplacer Elementary Algebra (EA) score of 50-59 or Next Generation score of 243-252
  • Placement into MTH 100
  • ACT math sub-score of 18 or 19, or

  • Accuplacer Elementary Algebra (EA) score of 60-79 or Next Generation score of 253-266
  • Placement into MTH 110 or MTH 112
  • Accuplacer Elementary Algebra (EA) score of 80-120 or Next Generation score of 267-300
