If you are planning to enroll in a math course at SCC, a placement test is no longer required. High school performance and/or Guided Self-Placement will be used to provide you with course recommendations.
New students must first apply to the college
Math placement will be based on either High School Performance or Guided Self-Placement. For a detailed explanation of each placement method, please continue reading below:
Recommendation based on High School Performance:
If you have attended or graduated high school within the last ten (10) years, SCC will use information you entered on your college application pertaining to your high school non-weighted grade point average (GPA), completion of high school coursework and grades to generate recommendations for math courses. Shortly after submitting a complete application to attend SCC and receiving your Welcome Letter, you will receive an e-mail with course recommendations for math course(s) based on your high school performance. If you have questions about your math placement recommendations, please visit the Counseling Center in room D-106.
Recommendation based on Guided Self-Placement:
If you have been out of high school for more than ten (10) years or fall into other circumstances where the high school performance method cannot be applied, you will need to complete the Guided Self-Placement process. Shortly after submitting a complete application to attend SCC and receiving your Welcome Letter, you will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to access and complete the Guided Self-Placement tool. Once you have completed the Guided Self-Placement tool, you will receive an e-mail within 3-5 working days (weekends and holidays excluded) with course recommendations. We encourage you to visit the Counseling Center in room D-106 to review your results and discuss course selection.
