New! Multiple Measure Placement

If you received a US high school diploma or equivalent within the past 10 years, you may not need to assess.

You could be eligible for a multiple measure placement. This is a placement in English and math based upon your high school coursework and overall grade point average (GPA). It can be used in lieu of assessment testing to meet course prerequisites. It also satisfies the assessment requirement for priority registration.
