Placement in English and Mathematics

All students who reach their 11th attempted credit must take a placement test in both English and Mathematics unless they qualify for a waiver. Students placed into Developmental English must enroll in these courses in their first semester at the College and continue to enroll in them until the requirements are completed. Students matriculated in degree programs must begin their required Developmental Mathematics courses by their 16th attempted credit.

These preparatory courses emphasize the development of basic reading, writing, computation, and algebra skills, which will help students perform successfully in college-level courses. Students are urged to seek academic advisement in choosing these and other courses.
