Students are placed into Mathematics and English courses based on qualifying exam scores. The intent is to appropriately place students into courses that are both challenging and for which they are adequately prepared.
Students will be required to take the ACCUPLACER test if they do not have ACT official scores dated within the last five years or ACCUPLACER official scores dated within the last three years.
Students may be required to complete the ACCUPLACER test in one, two or three areas depending on their ACT scores. This will ensure students are placed in courses appropriate to their abilities (see below overview).
