Placement Scores

Be sure to talk with an advisor when selecting your courses to ensure you will complete your certificate and/or degree on time with the classes you need.

**Scores below are official as of June 27, 2022**

The math assessment includes three different Next Generation Accuplacer exams, the Arithmetic exam (NGAR) the Quantitative Analysis exam (NGQA) and the Advanced Algebraic Formulas (NGAF) exam.  The exams are adaptive, so you may do one or three of these exams depending on how the exam questions are answered. 

  • Students who have an ACT score of 19 or higher or SAT of 500 place into college level math, with the option of testing to get into higher level classes.
  • However, students with an ACT score of 19-22 can take the math portion of the Accuplacer to place into MAT 1340 or higher.
  • Scores must be no more than five years old. Otherwise, assessment scores could determine placement.
  • **If a student places below the baseline score for their pathway, they will be placed into MAT 0250/0100 or MAT 0300/0200, depending on their pathway. Students may also opt out of testing and place directly into their developmental math class and lab.**
