Mandatory placement for all entry-level English courses is required by the Department of English. The appropriate level course for a student is determined by the SAT/ACT English score unless a score is not available. Then an English essay test will be required.
|ACT English score||SAT EBRW* score|
|ENG 101||17 and higher||450 and higher|
|ENG 100||Less than 17||Less than 450|
|Essay test required||No Scores||No Scores|
*SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing
Students who place into ENG 100 must take the ENG 100 course.
Students with no ACT/SAT scores, who need to take the placement test, should refer to the section “General Placement Testing Information” for information about taking the placement test.
English Placement Test
Students who do not have SAT/ACT scores will need to take an English essay test.
The English essay test is given using ACCUPLACER’s Writeplacer test.
