The Appendix to this policy was revised on April 6, 2017 to make the minimum score for Math 100 placement an ACT Math 15 or SAT 370-390 (old) or SAT 410-490 (new) based on a decision by Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs. The Appendix was revised on January 17, 2017 to reflect a change in the Statewide Remedial Education Policy section 8.00 making the minimum score for Math 100 placement 61 on the Accuplacer Elementary Algebra test. The Accuplacer Elementary Algebra criterion for placement into Math 100 was revised to be 57-60 based on a decision by the Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs. The minimum GPA for Math 100 placement of 2.80 did not change in either the April 6, 2017 or January 17, 2017 revisions.
