Assessment Scores Used for Placement
for the 2019-20 Academic Year

State law governs whether students are required to take placement testing and whether remediation through developmental education is required. The matrix below 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.

Non-exempt 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 Test Placement Score Updates: 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. In response to the State-mandated (SBE 6A-10.0315) update (Sept. 2019) ACCUPLACER Next Generation has been added to the list of approved test scores for placement purposes for non-exempt students. Interim College Ready cut scores are NG Reading 245, NG Writing 245, and NG Quantitative Reasoning,  Algebra, and Statistics (QAS) 242. ACCUPLACER Classic is no longer administered but the scores will be valid for two years after earning.
