Accuplacer Placement Test Scores

Liberal Arts & Sciences/General Education Requirements

If you already have an Associate's degree or higher or have completed substantial Liberal Arts and Sciences/ General Education coursework, you may not be required to complete all of the Liberal Arts and Sciences/General Education requirements; however, the Registrar's Office must review your transcripts for transfer of credit. Students without this background will be required to take the Accuplacer test that will enable us to place you in the appropriate level of classes.

State policy requires that all students meet the Accuplacer or ACT test minimum scores to get into the 2000 level English and Math courses. If you do not meet the minimum scores, you will need to take and pass the prerequisite courses (Pre-College Math, Reading and Writing II and College Success Strategies) prior to taking the 2000 transfer level course. See Liberal Arts and Sciences General Education Course Requirements for details. You can also find more information about the Accuplacer exam on the Accuplacer FAQ page.
