The English and Math Placement Matrix information listed below are current until 2023. Changes to this content will be reflected in the next catalog rotation (2024-2027).
Participation in dual enrollment Math and English Courses may require an initial placement score or GPA to qualify. These scores should be submitted along with the Dual Enrollment Registration form.
The dual enrollment representative should use each matrix to determine what scores are required before submitting a registration requiring English or Math Placement.
GPA of 2.5, English ACT of at least 16 (SAT 870)
GPA 3.5 without ACT/SAT Score
English ACT score of 17 (SAT 910)
English ACT score of 31-36 (SAT 1430-1600)
If a student has neither ACT scores nor GPA available or wishes to challenge placement, the student will take the Accuplacer WritePlacer test. A score of 5 or above on the ACCUPLACER WritePlacer will allow the student to enroll in English 1110.
Students may take the ACCUPLACER WritePlacer from a distance IF they can do so at an ACCUPLACER testing site. Most colleges and universities are approved. Individual schools may enquire about becoming test sites through the website accuplacer.org.
If it is not possible for a dual credit student to take the ACCUPLACER at an approved test site, please contact the Writing Program Director, Dr. Micah Donohue, Micah.Donohue@enmu.edu to arrange for an alternative test. This test will require the school to proctor a 2-hour written exam for the student.
Elementary Education Students should be enrolled in MATH 2610 Elementary Math Concepts I.
MATH 2610 has no pre-requisite.
MATH 1350 Intro to Statistics
MATH 1130 Survey of Mathematics or MATH 1220 College Algebra or any math class with MATH 1120 College Algebra as a prerequisite (i.e. MATH 1230 Trigonometry or MATH 1510 Calculus I)
*See the tables below for placement into MATH 1350 Intro to Statistics or MATH 1220.
**MATH 1130 has no prerequisite.
Students interested in Majors that do not require MATH 1220 or Math 1350 should take MATH 1130. MATH 1130 has no pre-requisite.
ACCUPLACER Scores on Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics Placement
Students who need both MATH 1220 and MATH 1350 should initially follow the placement for MATH 1220.
Once MATH 1220 is successfully completed, the student should then go directly to MATH 1350 (MATH 1218 is not required if MATH 1220 has been successfully completed).
Accuplacer Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics Subtest Placement
250 or lower should be placed in MATH 1216
250 to 262 should be placed in MATH 1220
Accuplacer Advanced Algebra and Functions Subtest Placement
263 to 275 should be placed in MATH 1230
276 and above should be placed in MATH 1510
Students with a MATH ACT of 24 or higher (SAT MATH of 600 or higher) are qualified to take MATH 1230 (Trigonometry) with no prerequisite.
Students with a MATH ACT of 26 or higher (SAT MATH of 640 or higher) are qualified to take MATH 1510 (Calculus I) or MATH 1439 (Survey of Calculus) with no prerequisite.
NOTE: Please contact your advisor or the chair of the Department of Mathematical Sciences if you are not certain about which math you need to take.
