2016-2017 Catalog

Placement Testing

All students who are degree-seeking are required to take the placement test. (Part-time, non-degree seeking students who take math, English, government and several other specific courses must also complete the placement test.) Students with qualifying high ACT and SAT scores may be exempt. Contact the ACE IT Center or Mustang Central for more information. The tests are designed to determine the student’s level of ability – they are not pass/fail exams. The College’s aim is to place the student in the course best suited to meet his/her particular skills. In some cases, developmental courses are required before students may enter college-level courses. Tests are offered at various times prior to each semester and at the Outreach Centers. Students may retake the exam once per semester for a fee. Students need to bring a photo ID when taking the test. Scores are valid for three years or as long as the student has continuous attendance at WWCC.
