Course Placement

Placement Web PageWeb Banner.png

Saint Paul College uses course placements to determine if you meet the requirements of a program. Each major has their own requirements for English, Reading, and Math, listed on their Program Requirements Guide. We need to have course placements on file before we can declare a major for you.

We can determine course placement for Reading, English, and Math through waivers or assessments.

We can use the following information to waive Reading, English, and Math assessments:

Click here for more detailed information on how we determine placements: Reading/English & Math.

  • Unofficial transcript(s) from a college or university with a grade of C or higher*
  • ACT/SAT/MCA scores within the last 5 years
  • ACCUPLACER scores: Math scores are valid for 2 years, and Reading/Writing scores are valid for 5 years from test date​
  • AP classes in which the college-level assessment was passed with a 3 or higher
  • IB classes in which the college-level assessment was passed with a 4 or higher
  • Unofficial transcript(s) of College in the Schools classes
  • High School transcripts with a GPA of 2.8 or higher within the last 10 year

Attach any of these documents to the Assessment Waiver Request.

* Please note: If you are looking to transfer in college credit in addition to using your transcripts to waive assessments, you will need to submit your official transcript for a formal Transcript Evaluation.

If a student does not have any of the above means for placements, Saint Paul College uses the following assessments to provide course placement.

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Guided Self-Placement

Saint Paul College currently uses a Guided Self-Placement Assessment for EAP, meaning the student determines the level they would like to be placed in.
