WHAT DOES PLACEMENT CONSIST OF?
first time freshmen must complete a Placement Assessment upon acceptance to the
College to be registered for classes. This
is an untimed assessment used to place incoming students in appropriate levels
of Math and English. Students are
allotted up to 3 hours in one session to complete two components:
- MATH consists of a web-based placement exam, ACCUPLACER,
covering topics in Arithmetic and Elementary Algebra.
- The ENGLISH assessment consists of reading a
short story and responding to a writing prompt, utilizing Microsoft Word to do
so. Non-native speakers of English also
take a Reading Comprehension assessment through ACCUPLACER.
Transfer students who wish to transfer
credits from an outside institution must submit official college transcripts and
should contact the office of admissions to determine if taking the Placement
Assessment t is required.
