You may be eligible for a testing exemption if you have previous college coursework in English, math and/or reading. If we have your transcripts, they will be evaluated as soon as possible and if you meet the necessary placement levels, an exemption will be submitted to the Testing Center. If you do not have coursework in these areas, see Option 1 above as you will need to complete the placement test before August 17.
