English and Math Placement Assessments
English and math skills assessments are required for undergraduate students prior to registering for any math or English courses (also see Exemptions below). The results of these assessments permit the University to place students in the appropriate math or English course for their skill level.
- You should complete an assessment as early as possible prior to registering for courses. Placement results do not guarantee a reserved seat in any required courses.
- Skills assessments are only required prior to registering for freshman English and math courses.
- Students may register for any other courses for which English and math courses are not pre-requisites.
Some students may not be required to take skills assessments based on standardized test scores or transfer credits. Please see Placement Assessment Exemptions for exemption criteria.
Skill Review and Skill-Building Courses
- ENG 095 and MAT 095 are 0-credit courses.
- Students choosing to take ENG 095 and/or MAT 095 as their first English and/or Math course are also required to complete the related English Essentials (ENG 110) and/or Math Essentials (MAT 110), for elective credit, with a grade of C or higher before taking English Composition (ENG 121) or the first math course required for their degree program.
Students may choose to take the CTA 206 Competency Exam if they believe their skills with computer applications meet or surpass the competencies for the course CTA 206, Computer Applications (required for most degree programs).
