Note: In cases where a student has multiple placement test scores, placement recommendations will be made using the test scores which provide the highest placement. Academic advisors should check test score dates on BANNER or UAOnline and strongly recommend that students retest if their scores are more than one year old.

* Reading scores are recommendations and not mandatory.

** The English department is working with rural campuses to develop a separate process for students who have limited access to ACT/SAT tests and who are highly skilled in writing to be placed into ENGL F211X/213X.

*** Students may take this course if allowed by the major or degree program.

**** Adult Basic Education (ABE) placement scores correspond to the Department of Education ability-to-benefit (ATB) test cutoff score. These are important requirements for federal financial aid for students who do not have a high school diploma or GED.
