English & Mathematics Course Placement

Placement of students in courses that most closely match their abilities results in a greater likelihood that these students will be successful in pursuing and completing their programs. Following North Dakota University System Policy and Procedure 402.1.2, students are placed into appropriate English and Math courses based on qualifying exam scores. While ACT and SAT scores are not required for admission purposes, they can still be used for placement purposes. If a student does not have ACT, SAT, or NDUS qualifying exam scores, they will be encouraged to take the ACCUPLACER exam. If a student has multiple scores, the highest score will be used for placement.
