Placement Testing

Students intending to enroll in an English or mathematics course (or a course with an English or mathematics prerequisite) must take a placement test before registering for classes. You may be exempt from English placement testing only based on previous college credit (i.e. AP, CLEP, transfer credit, ACT scores or SAT scores, etc..). Students who place into and plan to enroll in a College Algebra or higher level Mathematics course must show proof of geometry proficiency. Geometry proficiency can be presented by submitting an official high school transcript and having Integrated Math 1, 2, and 3 (Morton East and West students) or for all other students, the equivalent of. The Office of Admission and Records or your Academic Advisor can determine whether you have this proficiency completed.
