Students taking college mathematics or English courses for their degree or certificate program must take the ACCUPLACER, ACT or SAT placement assessment within 3 years of taking the course. Please contact Student Services at 907-852-1758 or testing.center@ilisagvik.edu to coordinate a day/time to take the test.

## Placement Scores

ACCUPLACER is used to determine student placement in appropriate course levels and thereby promote academic achievement. Contact testing.center@ilisagvik.edu for more information about taking the placement test.

*SAT cut scores were derived from the Understanding SAT Scores (2016) document published by College Board. Recommended placement into MATH 105 is determined with an SAT score at the 50th percentile of the nationally representative sample of students in 11th and 12th grades. MATH 105 is intended to serve average high school graduates as well as students in need of mathematics remediation. ACT scores were derived from SAT scores.
