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).

Placement Guidelines for English and Math

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.


English Placement Matrix

ENGL 1110 Composition I

  • 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)

ENGL 1120 Composition II

  • 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.

ACCUPLACER Scores on Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics Placement

  • 250 or lower should be placed in MATH 1218 Foundation for Statistics
  • 250-262 should be placed in MATH 1350 Intro to Statistics

Majors Requiring MATH 1350 AND Requiring MATH 1220

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).
