Placement

Many courses require an assessment of a student's skill level in reading, writing and math to ensure students are prepared to successfully complete the course. Students' course placement will determine how they progress through their program of study. Appropriate placement is important as it impacts a student's progression through their program and alignment of their demonstrated skill set to promote academic success.

See course sequencing for pre-college and college level courses in English, reading and math here.
