Accuplacer Placement Test Scores

General Education Requirements

If you already have an Associate's degree or higher or have completed substantial general education coursework, you may not be required to complete all of the 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 (Math Essentials II and/or Introductory Algebra, Reading and Writing III, Study Skills) prior to taking the 2000 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.
