All new students registering for courses must meet placement requirements prior to being allowed to register for an English and Mathematic level coursework. The purpose of placement testing at TMCC is to match the academic readiness of the incoming student with the academic requirements of the curriculum and enhance the probability of academic success. If test results do not meet the standards of college-level courses, students are required to register in courses, which help them to improve their learning and increase their opportunity to succeed in college.

Although the tests scores do not affect admission to the college, students will be required to meet established criteria for enrollment in English and Mathematic courses prior to registration. The following students are exempt from this procedure:

  1. Students who have submitted official college transcripts indicating the completion of college- level composition and math courses with a "C" or higher.
