  • Placement Tests (Math & Language)

    Placement tests help us help you. These exams have one goal: to assist in the proper placement of students into the appropriate college-level courses.

    Many incoming first-year, transfer and returning students are required to take placement exams before registering for math or certain chemistry classes.


You must take a math placement test if:

  1. Your ACT math score is below 19 and you need to take Chemistry 1010 or 1110, Statistics, Math 1050, 1070 or 2500.(algebra placement)

  3. You need to take any of the classes above and your ACT scores are 7 or more years old.
