General Education Placement Examinations

 

Mathematics Placement

Mathematics course placement will be based upon a grade of C or higher in a prerequisite math course taken within the past 5 years, current ACT (2 years or less) math sub-score, or math placement exam score, whichever is higher. For students who entered prior to Fall 2019, mathematics course placement will be based upon a grade of C+ or higher in a prerequisite math course taken within the past 5 years, current ACT (2 years or less) math sub-score, or math placement exam score, whichever is higher. Students may attempt the mathematics placement exam a total of three times with a minimum of three weeks between attempts, unless prior approval has been granted by the General Education Curriculum Subcommittee. Degree completion programs, due to the nature of their purpose and the unique experience of their students, may have alternate methods of math placement. Students must be aware of the math course and placement requirements of individual programs and should consult with their advisor regarding math placement.

Spanish Placement

The computer assisted placement examination (CAPE) may be taken by students who have completed one or more Spanish courses in high school or college, or have other prior second language environments.
