Freshman Placement Testing

The Freshman Placement Testing Program evaluates first-time freshmen, and readmitted and transfer students who have not completed three semester hours of acceptable transfer credits in both English and college level mathematics. Tests are administered in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. The placement tests are designed to help students identify skills that should be strengthened and to place students in appropriate English and mathematics courses. If indicated by test results, students who need further development will be assigned to developmental courses. The laboratories are located in the Academic Support Center and are designed for both skill development and enrichment.

Students who need to strengthen various college skills will be assigned to one or more of the following developmental courses. These courses will then constitute prerequisites for required English and Mathematics courses. Although GE 100, GE 106, and GE 109 carry course credit, these courses cannot be counted toward fulfilling graduation requirements. Students must earn grades of "C" or better in the aforementioned classes.
