Placement

High School students are still required to go through the self-placement process even if their high school principals approve for them to take a college course. 

Placement in English and Math is one of the critical first steps to helping students successfully start their college experience. It is also important that you understand your placement options and your right to access transfer-level coursework.

Our new placement process is completely online and is based on self-reported information, which relies on your honesty. The only person impacted by your placement level is YOU! Your honesty will determine an appropriate placement level that will be essential to your success in college. If you have any questions or concerns about your placement you may visit a counselor on a drop-in basis.
