What Do My Placement Results Mean?


Preparation for your Assessment Test is critical because it defines for you and your Counselor the Math and English courses that are best suited for you to take your first semester. Once you are placed into the appropriate course you will follow the Pre-requisite “course sequence”.  A Pre-requisite is a course that you must complete before you are allowed to enroll in the next course.


An example of this is:

If a student places in Math 105 they must successfully complete Math 105 before they can enroll in Math 110. If a student is placed in English 21 they must successfully complete English 21 before they can enroll in English 28.


Students are invited visit the Assessment Test Prep web-sites before taking the Assessment test so that you can progress more quickly through your college courses to meet your educational goal.


Students are advised to diligently review Math and English before taking the WLAC Assessment test through the following resources:
