Placement tests are required to determine which classes you are qualified to take...
What is included in the placement tests?
The Accuplacer test includes a reading and writing (grammar).
New students will also be required to take the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory
(LASSI) as part of the placement testing process
The ALEKS test includes math.
Does every student have to take a placement test?
No and some students may only need one placement test. For example, students who
place into college-level writing on the SAT or ACT do not need to take the Accuplacer. Transfer students who have completed college-level
math do not need the ALEKS and transfer students who have completed college-level
writing do not need to take the Accuplacer. Seek advising from Student Services if you are unsure if you need either the Accuplacer or the ALEKS.
