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 two years old.

* The ACT Writing Test score determines placement for students who have different placement actions based on their ACT English test score.

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

*** DEVE F109--Preparatory College Writing III or DEVS F104--University Communications is strongly recommended for students who earn a grade of C or lower in DEVE F070 or earn lower than a C in ENGL F111X on their first attempt.
