Placement Appeals & Challenges

If the student believes that their course placement recommendation from either their placement exams or evaluation of their alternative evidence is not indicative of his/her abilities, they may take advantage of the Challenge and/or Appeal options. Students use these options if they do not want to wait the mandatory re-test waiting periods. Please see the sub-links from the yellow menu on the left for more information.

  • Students may challenge their math placement given from either the math assessment exam or alternative evidence.
  • Students may also appeal their English placement that was given from the placement exam only.
