Establish Your Skill Level

Washtenaw Community College is committed to student success and wants to ensure the courses you take are right for you. First, we'll determine your skills through our placement process to understand your academic skill level.

All associate degrees require English, math and reading at the college level. It is important to register for the correct English and math classes so you can complete your degree and transfer to a four-year college or university upon graduation.

WCC uses multiple ways, including high school GPA and various placement tests, to place you in the right English and math courses. Learn more about how your test scores are used to place you.
