If you are a new student, a transfer student, or even a continuing student, there are many reasons why you might need to take a math, English, and/or reading placement test. Before you register for classes, read the information about placement tests and developmental education courses found in the Academic Bulletin and Schedule of Classes and the General Catalog. You should take a placement test if one of the following applies:
Note: Math, English and/or reading placement test scores will determine developmental course placement (such as MATH 097, MATH 098, MATH 099, READ 099, ENGL 098, ENGL 099, and EDUC 099) or college-level course placement (such as MATH 102 and ENGL 101).

If ACT scores fall in the ranges listed below, the BPCC Placement Test must be taken unless the college mathematics and/or English courses have already been taken or unless enrollment is scheduled in the appropriate developmental course(s).
Developmental education courses are provided for BPCC students who score below the minimum required BPCC Placement Test scores. developmental courses include EDUC 099, READ 099, CIS 099, ENGL 098, ENGL 099, and MATH 097, MATH 098, and MATH 099. These semester-length courses will transfer to other post-secondary institutions as equivalent courses but will not satisfy degree requirements.
