General Information about Placement Test

Peirce College is committed to your academic success. The Placement Test is an assessment of math and English skills which can help students identify their academic strengths and areas of academic need. This information is used to assist students in developing a successful academic plan. Your Enrollment Representative will be your guide as you begin this process.

Next Steps:
  • Apply to College by completing an Application at www.peirce.edu/apply
  • Pay the Application Fee
  • Talk with your Enrollment Representative about Placement Testing
  • If required, take the Placement test.
  • Based on test results, schedule classes.

Who Takes the Placement Test?

Students who apply to the College without transfer credit (a grade of C or above) in English 101 and/or college-level math are required to take skills assessments. Students with recent (less than 5 years old) SAT or ACT standardized tests scores should speak to their Enrollment Representatives about possibly using these scores instead of taking the placement test. The College uses the assessments to place students in the appropriate level of English and/or math. The assessments are generally administered on the computer and measures composition and math skills. A paper and pencil version of the math assessment and special accommodations for disabled students are available.

Students will be guided by an Enrollment Representative to select their courses. Students who score below 73% on the assessment(s) are required to take English 010 and/or Math 010 (these are semester-length remedial courses). Students who readmit to the College without transfer credit or who have not successfully completed English 101 and/or college-level math must adhere to this policy.

Students may waive the assessment(s) requirement, resulting in automatic enrollment in the Developmental Education Program. Developmental Education students must complete the remedial courses assigned to them within one year of enrollment. Both ENG 010 and MAT 010 are 14-week courses. ENG 010 and MAT 010 do not count toward any degree program. ENG 010 and/or MAT 010 serve as required prerequisite courses for students within the Developmental Education Program.
