Why am I enrolled in ENGL0900 and/or MATH0900? The Office of Academic Advising & Testing utilizes ACT and SAT scores to place students in the appropriate math and English courses. Students must be math and English ďproficientĒ to begin University-level math and English courses. If your ACT/SAT score(s) are below the minimum required by the University, you will be placed in the appropriate remedial course(s) to earn proficiency.

 

What are my options if I believe my math and/or English abilities are higher than my current test scores indicate? You are welcome to complete COMPASS placements tests in math and/or English. These computerized placement tests are similar to the math and English portions of the ACT test.

The COMPASS test is available at NNU for $10 per test. The Office of Academic Advising & Testing is available to administer the test throughout the summer, during New Student Orientation, and throughout the academic year. It is also widely available at community college and university testing centers around the country. If you complete a COMPASS test at another institution, please be sure to have your official scores sent to NNU. Upon receipt of your official test scores indicating math and/or English proficiency, the Office of Academic Advising & Testing will make adjustments to your schedule.

 

You may also demonstrate math and/or English proficiency by transferring the appropriate pre-requisites to NNU from another school. Contact the NNU Registrarís Office or the Office of Academic Advising & Testing for more information.
