All students who do not have transfer credits in college English or mathematics are required to take a placement exam in each subject. Placement exams are offered at each of the four summer registration days for the Day Division and during Orientation Weekend. Accelerated and Professional Studies students take their placement exam online.
The College evaluates students' skills based on the results of the tests, so they may be enrolled in classes that will challenge them but not cover material they may not yet be able to handle. Note that the College requires students pass EN101 English I, EN102 English II, and MA 106 Elementary Algebra (or a higher level) before completing 45 college credits toward their degree.
