Assessment for placement is one of the critical steps to help students start on a successful pathway in college. It is also critical that students understand their placement options, and their rights to access transfer level coursework. If the student has graduated from a U.S. high school within the last ten years (or will be graduating this academic year), their math and English placement will be calculated upon admissions and their results can be viewed in their Student Portal. All other students will do a guided self-placement activity for math and English. If students are interested in English as a Second Language (ESL) coursework, it is recommended that they take the ESL Guided Self-Placement to determine their appropriate level. 

Students may fulfill the assessment for placement requirements by using the following information or methods. Specific information regarding each method and eligibility can be found at
