Mandatory Placement

Mandatory course placement was developed to provide information about the English, math, science, and reading skills required for success in college. By assessing your ability, mandatory placement helps to determine the courses most appropriate for you.


Course placement in English, math, science, and reading courses will be determined by either ACT/SAT sub-scores, high school GPA, or placement test (CPT) scores.  Students who are under age 21 will take placement tests unless they have either ACT or SAT scores (SAT will be converted to ACT equivalents) of 19 or higher in English, math, and reading or an unweighted cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 7 semester or final high school transcript.  Adult students (age 21 or older) and active-duty military will be required to take the CPT unless they submit either the optional ACT or SAT scores (SAT will be converted to ACT equivalents) of 19 or higher in English, math, and reading or an unweighted cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 7 semester or final high school transcript.
