3. Complete a Math and English Skills Assessment

Students are required to complete an assessment (Accuplacer) of their English and mathematics skills prior to registering for their required freshman English and math courses in their intended degree program. Placement testing can be taken at a convenient time and location.

All students are expected to take all Accuplacer tests unless exempted due to the transfer of an equivalent math and/or English course or acceptable SAT scores (450 or above on math, critical reading and writing tests). To be exempt from Accuplacer Reading Comprehension, Sentence Skills and WritePlacer, a 450 must be achieved on both the Critical Reading SAT and Writing SAT.

Part-time students who are not majoring in education or nursing are not required to submit their health/immunization records.
