Standardized assessment tests are no longer administered for placement into English and math classes. An English as a Second Language (ESL) test is still offered.

Placement results are used by academic counselors to determine readiness for specific courses and programs. For students enrolling in English writing and math, placements may be based on a review of their academic record or on a Guided Self-Placement.
