Course Placement

Saint Paul College uses course placements to determine if you meet the requirements of a program. Each major has their own requirements for English, Reading, and Math, listed on their Program Requirements Guide. We need to have course placements on file before we can declare a major for you.

We can determine course placement for Reading, English, and Math through waivers or assessments.

Waivers

Saint Paul College can use any of the following to waive assessments. Please attach any of these documents to the Assessment Waiver Request.

Unofficial transcripts from a college or university with a grade of C or higher
ACT/SAT/MCA scores within the last 5 years
AP classes in which the college-level assessment was passed with a 3 or higher

Reading/English/English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Assessment

If a student does not have any of the above means for placements, Saint Paul College uses an in-house Reading/English/EAP Assessment to determine what is the most appropriate placement level for each student. Once a student completes the assessment, it will be graded by a Saint Paul College instructor. The instructor will then recommend what Reading and English placement level the student should be placed into based on how the student performed on the assessment.

Begin The Assessment

Once the assessment is graded, an One Stop Advisor will contact the student to discuss the recommended Reading and English placement level, what it means, and what the student’s next steps are. Please allow up to four business days to receive your course placement recommendation.

Math ACCUPLACER

Saint Paul College currently uses the Math ACCUPLACER to determine Math placements for students who cannot be placed through other means.

The Math ACCUPLACER is offered on-campus through our Testing Center.
