Course Placement Guide

To encourage academic success, the College assigns students with particular areas of vulnerability to specific and appropriate courses. Florida College uses standardized tests scores (ACT or SAT) to provide the basis for placement in English and mathematics courses. The chart below indicates conditions under which students are required to complete certain prerequisites successfully (with a grade of C or better) before being admitted to higher-level courses in English or mathematics.
