Identify the correct starting points for your classes.



One of the first steps in the admissions process is to identify your English and math starting points. The Testing Center also administers placement exams for Biology 241 and Chemistry 141. All associate degrees and some certificates require English & math placement. There are several ways to determine your starting points:

  • Take the Accuplacer Assessment Exam 
  • Transcript Review

See below for more information about the options available to you.
