The placement process evaluates your skill level in writing and mathematics to determine which courses are most appropriate to maximize your academic success. Placement decisions are made by professional staff from the Student Academic Success Center. Results are reported to academic advisors prior to registration.
As an incoming undergraduate student, you will be placed in an appropriate writing course (Writing Lab with English Composition, or English Composition) based on a review of multiple measures of your achievement, including high school grade point average, high school English grades, Advanced Placement credit, or English Composition transfer credit.
Math placement is made based on your credentials prior to New Student Orientation. First-year students are assigned one of five levels using a combination of data: high school mathematics courses and grades, other high school transcript information, GPA, and SAT/ACT or other standard mathematics test scores if available. Transfer students are placed based on available high school records and college transcripts.
Academically, my grades are flourishing with the continued assistance from the writing support team.”
