Recommendation from the math department: It is strongly recommended that students re-assess if their course preparation (either prerequisite course work or assessment score) is more than two years old.
Some courses require that a student read, write or analytically compute at a certain level before enrolling in the next course. This is a required prerequisite. You can satisfy prerequisites either through an assessment test or the methods listed above. A co-requisite requires that you enroll in the co-requisite class at the same time.
The assessments officially measure your skills in English comprehension, reading and math. You need to assess before registering for classes that have math or English prerequisite. There is no fee, you can assess twice in a six month period, there is a one week waiting period between assessments. Additional indicators or “multiple measures”of your skills and knowledge gained outside the classroom will be taken into consideration and given a numerical value in your final score. Your assessment indicates your placement level and whether you have satisfied the math and English prerequisites. If you have not "placed into" the class you hoped to, you may reassess. If you still score below your target, you must take the class indicated on the score sheet.
