Complete course placement

Course placement is used to determine what courses students are eligible to take. In order to complete course placement, you can take the ACCUPLACER exam, submit ACT scores, or provide your unweighted high school GPA.

Test scores are valid for three years from date of test. An unweighted high school GPA can be used to determine course placement as long as your high school graduation date is within three years of when you complete the lineman application.

If your course placement is READ 10 or READ 11, you will need to complete the developmental reading course sequence before you start the lineman program.

Testing into READ 10 will require you to successfully pass READ 10 and READ 11, and testing into READ 11 will require you to complete READ 11.

Previously completed college credits may result in you not needing to complete course placement. Please call 816.604.6587 if you have any questions about course placement, scheduling for the ACCUPLACER exam or transfer credit.
