In the situation where there are more applicants than available seats, preference will be given to applicant(s) who demonstrates math proficiency or readiness. If you are 21 years of age or older and have not had prior college-level math classes, you should take the COMPASS test (math portion). For applicants under the age of 21 the ACT/ACT residual math score will be used. Math proficiency is classified as a DSPM 0800 level competency or higher, or comparable ACT score. All test scores must be less than 3 years old. Testing can be scheduled through the Counseling and Testing Office at WSCC, 423-585-6800.
If you were qualified but space was unavailable, you may be placed on an alternate list.
