  • If your ACT/SAT scores have not been submitted or you didn't take the tests, you have to take all three placement tests before registering for classes. Student must schedule a date with their admissions counselor to take the placement test on campus.


  • A writing placement test is required for incoming freshmen with an ACT English score below 21 and composite score below 23, or an SAT total score below 1200.
  • The writing placement test determines whether you are required to complete English courses before enrolling.

Reading Comprehension

  • A reading comprehension placement test is required for incoming freshmen with an ACT reading score below 19 or an SAT evidence-based reasoning/verbal score below 530.
  • The placement test determines whether you are required to take College Reading and Learning Strategies.


  • A math placement test is required for incoming freshmen who meet the following criteria.
    • ACT math score: Below 19
    • SAT math score: Below 530
  • If you are not required to take math placement testing, your advisor will recommend a math course appropriate for your major and ability level based on your ACT/SAT scores.
