Freshman and Sophomores

  • Freshmen and Sophmores must take a placement test to qualify for Dual Enrollment. 

    How to Take EdReady Placement Tests

    EdReady (used for Fall 2020 only) is taken by the student on their home computer.  Students have the opportunity to continue taking the placement test until they get the score they need to qualify for a class.  To take an EdReady test and to view the Navigation Guide, go to maricopa.edready.org/home

    EdReady English is used for ENG101.

    EdReady Quantitative Reasoning, Alg and Stats Placement is used for placement into MAT140, MAT141, or MAT142.

    EdReady College Algebra Placement is used for placement into MAT150, MAT151, MAT152 and MAT187.

    EdReady College Reading is used to participate in the Dual Enrollment Program (if you have no other testing) and BIO181.

    Accuplacer scores from the last 5 years will be accepted (for Fall 2020 only).

    You May Qualify for Tuition Assistance

    Tuition Assistance is not Financial Aid as high school students don't qualify for Federal Financial Aid.  Maricopa Community Colleges has made grant money available to help pay for dual enrollment classes for those who qualify.  Go to cgc.edu/dual and click on Tuition Assistance in the left navigation to read the application and see if your family qualifies.

    Students who qualify for, and are awarded tuition assistance, are eligible to receive funds to pay for up to a maximum of 12 dual enrollment credits for the school year. If students are taking additional dual enrollment credits that aren't being covered by tuition assistance, it is the student's (if 18 or older) or family's responsibility to pay the remaining balance.
