Assessment Scores Used for Placement

In response to the State-mandated (SBE 6A-10.0315) update (9/19) added ACCUPLACER Next Generation to the list of approved tests with interim College Reading scores for placement purposes for non-exempt students. ACCUPLACER Classic is no longer administered but the scores will be valid for two years after earning. Students with PERT Math 130+ or QAS 258+ are eligible to take AAF for advanced math placement.


The following matrix provides guidelines for placement into college level and remedial courses. Students should see an advisor to determine exemption or placement recommendations. Note: Scores used for placement are in effect at the time of the publication of this catalog.  However, the Florida Department of Education may mandate new college ready cut scores at any time.
