Prerequisites or Placement Testing Overview:
Students must meet the prerequisite criteria for the Dual Enrollment course or have a qualifying placement score by taking an appropriate placement test. Start by pulling up the ACP class list at the top and hover over the prerequisites to check what your student needs to do. All CGCC courses require some form of placement testing or prerequisite. In most cases, Juniors and Seniors may use their unweighted GPA, or passing ACT/SAT scores to meet the pre-requisite for DE classes. Freshmen and Sophomores can meet the pre-requisite needed for DE by testing with EdReady. EdReady is a placement test that can be taken online in the student's home. Dual Enrollment will use three Ed Ready placement tests: College Reading (for all DE classes that are not English or Math EdReady English, and EdReady Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra and Statistics for MAT140, MAT141, and MAT142 (we are getting more information about higher Math classes). Accuplacer scores will be accepted for the last 5 years (previously they were only accepted for the last 2 years).
In order to take the placement tests, you will need your MEID number. If you are a new dual student please apply HERE to get a MEID Number. Returning dual students use the same MEID as last year.
