The ACT/SAT scores of freshmen are used to determine entry-level courses for English composition, mathematics, and reading. Trevecca accepts a student's highest composite score but cannot combine scores from separate tests. Certain entering students will be required to take developmental studies courses based on their scores.
A new student will be placed in an entry-level course based on the following:
||SAT Critical Reading
||SAT (beginning March 2016 test date) Reading
||ENG 1080 Critical Reading, Writing, and Thinking
||ENG 1020 English Composition
||ENG 1010 Introduction to Rhetoric

||ENG 1010 + ENG 1010L Introduction to Rhetoric and Lab
||SAT (beginning March 2016 test date) Math
||MAT 1510 Calculus I
||MAT 1310 Precalculus
||MAT 1040 Concepts of Mathematics OR MAT 1055 College Algebra* OR MAT 1080 Problem Solving: A Quantitative Reasoning Approach
|19 & below
||470 & below

||INT 0960 Intermediate Algebra**
*College Algebra does not satisfy the general education mathematics requirement.
**Developmental courses do not earn credit toward graduation.
