new student TO-DO LIST
Testing- Deadline: Complete when
Placement testing is mandatory for some students. Based on your academic records, you may be required to complete the CollegeBoard’s ACCUPLACERŽ Reading Comprehension test which will assess your basic skills in reading, the Department of Mathematics math placement exam, or both. If testing is required, the message “Placement Testing” will appear on your online student account To-Do list indicating which test(s). You will also receive e-mail notification with additional information.
Placement Testing Notification:
Notification of placement testing will be sent only to students who are required to test based on academic information available on the date the notification is e-mailed. You are responsible for submitting documentation for any updated academic scores or transfer credits that can qualify you for exemption from placement testing. The e-mail will include which test(s) must be taken. For reading, instructions about on-campus testing dates or testing at a pre-approved, off-campus location will be available and for mathematics instructions on how to go online to complete the mathematics exam. Once you have tested or an exemption has been finalized, the “Placement Testing” To-Do list indicator on your online student account will no longer be displayed.
