The placement test in basic skills must be completed prior to the first day of classes of the term in which the student is matriculated. The results will determine appropriate placement into developmental reading, writing, mathematics, and/or study skills courses which serve as prerequisites to the corresponding program requirements. Exceptions to the placement testing requirement are granted to a student (1) who has earned a New York State Regents diploma and passed the English 11 Regents exam with a grade of 75 or better, or (2) who has presented evidence of transferable credit for Freshman English, or (3) who has scored 450 verbal and 450 mathematics on the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test), or (4) who has comparable scores of 18 verbal and 18 mathematics of the ACT (American College Testing).
