General note: No scores four years or older (including high school GPA, which must be cumulative unweighted high school GPA at the end of the first semester senior year) may be used to place students into coursework. Students qualify to take the highest-level course available for that student based upon placement scores. However, placement should be based upon all forms of evidence and a conversation with the student.

*Advisor Permission: Consider other factors – the rigor of HS classes, HS grades in English, reading ability, writing and reading test scores
