All newly-accepted students are required to take the ACCUPLACER College Placement Exam. The ACCUPLACER exam tests students in three areas: Elementary Algebra, Reading Comprehension, and Sentence Skills. Based on the test results, students may be required to participate in the Johnson College Preparatory Program. Written notification of test scores will be provided upon completion of the exam. If the minimal score is not achieved, students have the option of re-taking the test once.
An accepted student who does not meet minimal ACCUPLACER scores will be required to complete one or more College Prep courses with a grade of “C” or higher during the summer prior to the start of classes. The prep courses provide academic reinforcement services prior to the start of the freshmen year. The Preparatory courses include math, writing, reading and study skills courses as well as access to a computer lab. Taking these courses may result in extending a student’s program of study and, consequently, may have an impact on eligibility for financial aid. Credits earned in College Preparatory courses cannot be used to meet graduation requirements and do not count as elective courses; grades earned in College Preparatory courses are calculated into overall GPA.
