*If the college has more than one assessment for the student in its records, such
as the ACT, the SAT, PSAT, Accuplacer, ALEKS, and particular classes, the College
uses the highest scores or class/es) to assign the Academic Level to the student.
**Successful completion of the course listed in the "completed course" column (or one of the test scores listed next to it) will bring the student to the academic level listed next to it. Successful completion requires a minimum grade of 'C' or 'S' or 'P'. Students may enroll concurrently in MTH 176 and MTH 178 .
***Students with the following exemption test codes (EXAP (apprentice), EXPC, EXCG (prior college), EXPG, EXGU (guest student), and EXPT (old exemption code)) are assumed to have Level 6 reading and Level 6 writing. Students who have an exempt score and wish to take a Math class which requires an Academic Level must demonstrate the required Academic Level by taking ALEKS. See a WCC counselor.
