Admission to the college and use of your NetID is required to use the process on this page. These two processes allow you to upload a PDF document or to request an English or math placement test if needed.

Use this process if you wish to register for an English or math class. There are a variety of ways you can clear/verify a prerequisite for an English or math class. These include the following:

  • High School Documents: unofficial transcript, Smarter Balanced Test Scores, AP/IB/Cambridge test scores
  • ALEKS (math) and ACCUPLACER test scores from other colleges
  • Unofficial college transcripts
  • GED
  • TOEFL/IELTS reports

Click on the button below to upload your documents or to ask to take a placement test. Some documents may expire after one or two years. Check the English and Math Placement site for detailed information.
