Placement Testing

All degree-seeking students should plan to enroll in mathematics and English every semester until they have completed at least one college-level (course number 100 or higher) math and English class. Studies consistently show that students who complete their English and math classes quickly, and in a continuous fashion, are more likely to graduate.

All developmental math and English classes (course number below 100) must be completed prior to the completion of 30 college-level credits unless otherwise authorized by the institution.

All associate and baccalaureate degree programs at 澳门新甫京娱乐游戏在线下载 entail college-level English and mathematics courses. Enrollment in these courses requires one of the following:

  • Qualifying scores on the ACT or SAT.
  • Qualifying scores on a 澳门新甫京娱乐游戏在线下载-administered placement test.
  • Successful completion of developmental courses. Scores from placement tests above determine which developmental courses may be required, if any. For details, consult the Placement Testing section of the 澳门新甫京娱乐游戏在线下载 catalog or your adviser.
