Initial Assessment and Placement

This chart shows the minimum requirements for entry into college level courses or where a student would be placed into a Learning Support based co-requisite course. 

1 - beginning Fall 2015.

2 - with NO math transfer credits.

3 - A complete list of the courses that do not require a prerequisite of READ 0562 can be found on the Reading Learning Support webpage.

4 - these courses are active and are available for registration beginning Summer 2015.

*Students scoring below the minimum on either the Reading or Writing portions of the ACT or Compass CANNOT register for ENGL 1010, including the ENGL 0510/1010 co-requisite, until they have completed the READ 0562/HUM 262 co-requisite courses. 

All Tennessee Board of Regents colleges and universities require that all first time degree-seeking students undergo assessment using the ACT (students under 21) or COMPASS (for students 21 and older). Transfer students who have not successfully completed college-level mathematics, reading, and writing courses must also undergo assessment. Further information regarding basic skills assessment can be obtained by contacting the Testing Center on the Roane County or Oak Ridge campuses.

Restricted Enrollment

Students whose assessment results require enrollment in Learning Support courses may not enroll in certain college-level courses until they have satisfactorily completed Learning Support. Exceptions to this policy require the approval of the Dean of the college-level course.
