Accuplacer Preparation

Accuplacer has provided all students with the opportunity to study and review testing materials. To see the practice questions and prepare for testing click on the following link for additional details: https://accuplacer.collegeboard.org/students . Please keep in mind we administer these exams to assist in ensuring you are placed in courses that meet your academic level and that will set you up for success.


Math and English Placement

Math Placement

There are four different math course you may place into based on your Accuplacer score: MA 005 – Basic Mathematics (3-credits and pass/fail), MA 112 – Intermediate Algebra (3-credits), MA 114- Algebra and Trigonometry (4-credits), or MA 261 – Calculus 1 (4-credits). Each of these courses are prerequisites for one another, meaning they must be taken in this order. Each program of study starts with a different math course.

What does that mean for you? It can mean two things. (1) if your program begins with MA 261 but you place into MA 114, then you must take MA 114 before you can take MA 261. (2) if your program begins with MA 112 but you place into MA 114, then you can replace MA 112 with another math elective.


English Placement

There are three English courses you may place into based on your Accuplacer score: EN 001 – Basic Writing (3-credits and pass/fail), ENI 101- English Communication I Intensive (3-credits) also include a secondary English Communications Lab for additional support, and EN 101- English Communication I (3-credits).

What does that mean for you? It can mean two things. (1) successful completion (70% or higher) of EN 001 will allow you to register for EN 101 English Communication I in the next semester and then EN 102- English Communications II in the following semester. (2) successful completion (70% or higher) of ENI 101 or EN 101 will allow you to register for EN 102- English Communication II in the next semester.
