It is strongly recommended that all entering undergraduate students take the Accuplacer mathematics and English evaluation as part of the admissions process. The results of the evaluation are printed immediately and copy is provided to students. Regardless of previous academic background, all students applying to any nursing program must complete both the mathematics and English ACCUPLACER exams.
First-time undergraduate students can take the Accuplacer evaluation tests once at no charge. Subsequent evaluations can be repeated after 14 days for a $5 fee. The ACCUPLACER may be repeated a maximum of three (3) times.
Students may request transfer credit for lower division college-level mathematics courses completed elsewhere with a grade of "C" or better. Students without transferable mathematics credits will be evaluated for the pre-collegiate mathematics sequence, MTH 012A and MTH 012B, to be completed prior to college-level mathematics. Students may test out of one or both of these classes through successful placement by Accuplacer.
Students may request transfer credit for lower division college-level English courses completed elsewhere with a grade of "C" or better. Students without transferable English credits will be evaluated for the pre-collegiate English course, ENG 013, to be taken prior to college-level English. Students may test out of ENG 013 through successful placement by ACCUPLACER.
MTH 012A, MTH 012B, and ENG 013 do not grant collegiate credit. Grading is S/U only.
