Assessment and placement

M州使用ACT, 坐, MCA, Accuplacer分数, high school GPA or previous college coursework to determine course placement. Accuplacer assessment testing is now available on campus for students who would like to re-test or have their current course placement re-evaluated. 

*Note: M State cannot use MCA scores for writing placements.

Course placement may be determined by: 

  • Scores from ACT, 坐 and/or the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA) 
  • Accuplacer assessment 
  • High school GPA for students who have graduated from high school within the last 10 years. Transcripts can be emailed in PDF格式. In the absence of an official high school transcript, self-reported high school GPA may be submitted to records@welcome2dpts.com
  • Completion of college-level coursework from an accredited college or university 
  • Guided self-placement

Guided self-placement 

Guided self-placement with an academic advisor will be used for students who have earned a GED or graduated from high school more than 10 years ago. We recommend that you have your GED test results available during the meeting with an academic advisor. 

Students who are planning to apply to an M State selective admissions program cannot use guided self-placement. 

If you are using guided self-placement, you will be asked these questions to help us place you in the courses that best support your learning needs:

  1. What language did you first learn to speak?
  2. Which language do you speak most often at home?
  3. How many years of education (elementary through high school) did you attend in the United States?
