A subscore of 23 in the math portion of the ACT will place a student into College Algebra. The ACT is not used to place a student into any other level of mathematics at SCC.
A score lower than 23 in the math portion of the ACT will require a student to take the placement exam at SCC.
In order to place into a higher-level math course than College Algebra, a student will need to take the placement exam or provide a transfer credit with a passing grade in the prerequisite course.
There is no charge for the placement exam.
