# Mandatory Academic Placement

## Information

We are dedicated to the success of students. In line with this mission, we have a mandatory placement policy that requires students who score below minimum levels in reading, writing and/or math to take transitional coursework prior to enrollment into certain courses in order to develop their academic skills. For more information, see Mandatory Placement guidelines below. **English and math requirements are unique to each program of study. To ensure proper course placement and selection, meet with an Advisor prior to registration.**

The testing semester begins the day after the semester final grades are due in the registrar's office and ends the day the instructors' final grades are due in the registrar's office. Students may test or re-test twice a testing semester.
