Assessment Scores Used for Placement
for the 2016-17 Academic Year

State law governs whether students are required to take placement testing and whether remediation through developmental education is required. The following matrix provides guidelines for placement into college level and remedial courses. Developmental education courses are designed to assist students in acquiring the skills necessary for succeeding in college level courses. Classes are offered in different formats, including modular and compressed, during full or accelerated terms. Students must attend class regularly and earn passing grades to complete the developmental coursework. Developmental course grades may not be calculated into the grade point average. Developmental courses may not be audited.

Students who must take a common placement test and do not meet or exceed college ready scores are required to enroll in developmental education. Students should meet with an advisor to review their options and create an educational plan.

Important SAT Note: SAT exams taken in March 2016 or later are considered "Redesigned SAT" scores and have different placement requirements from the SAT given prior to those dates. Students who took the SAT exam in March 2016 or later and scored below College Ready as indicated in the "Redesigned SAT" column below, should see an EFSC Advisor to discuss possible test exemption or schedule the PERT to determine placement in the appropriate developmental education course.
