Placement Test Information

At UNA, we use your ACT or SAT scores to place you in your English and math classes. If you do not have scores or if your scores are not high enough to place you in your preferred level of math or English, you can take a placement test.

English

Placement for EN 111

An ACT English score of 18 or higher or an SAT Reading score of 450 or above will place a student in EN 111 (Freshmen Comp I). Students who do not meet this threshold, or students who do not have a score on file are welcome to take the Accuplacer WritePlacer test in order to test into EN 111. A score of 5 (out of a possible 8) will allow a student to skip EN 099 (Basic English).
