Polices and Procedures
PLACEMENT TESTS FOR ENGLISH, MATH AND READING
Students seeking placement into university writing and mathematics classes can arrange to take the ASSET, ACCUPLACER, or Residual ACT placement tests. Students will receive advice on placement into appropriate classes at the conclusion of testing. Students returning to campus after academic suspension receive advising concerning a variety of policies and programs that Shepherd offers to help them boost their grade point averages. Students who do not meet the state requirement for placement in writing and/or mathematics enroll in stretch-model classes—ENGL 100A, ENGL 100B, MATH 101A, and MATH 101B—which are directed by Academic Support Center, located in the Carper Learning Commons in the Scarborough Library, First floor.
