ACT and SAT Test Scores

Although not required for admission, students may submit ACT or SAT test results for possible waivers from placement testing. Reading and writing subject area scores are valid if taken within three calendar years, inclusive of the current year, and mathematics scores are valid for two calendar years, inclusive of the current calendar year. An ACT sub score of 18 or above in English, 21 or higher in reading, and a sub score of 22 or higher in mathematics exempts a student from taking the placement test in that academic skill area and places the student in the introductory college-level course in that academic subject. An SAT score of 550 or higher in reading, English or mathematics exempts the student from taking the placement test in that academic skill area and places the student in the introductory college-level course in that academic subject. Placement testing requirements for transfer students are listed under the Transfer Students from Accredited Colleges or Universities section of this catalog.
