Is Placement Testing Required?
Placement scores are mandatory for enrollment into English, math and other classes. If you are not exempt from testing, then you are required to take these exams. If you have a high enough ACT or SAT score, you may not need placement testing. Your PSAT or high school GPA may also excuse you from testing. Check out our temporary alternative measures or watch the video below to see if you qualify.
