Bay College is committed to student success. Students must enroll in Reading, English, and/or Math courses based on placement scores provided at the time of admission.  Some students may be required to take one of our placement tests (see below). Students who do not meet the Reading (R), English (E), and/or Math (M) prerequisites for college-level courses will need to enroll in Transitional Studies (TS) courses.

Transitional Studies courses are designed to assist students in reaching their educational goals. Credits awarded in these courses do not count towards graduation, nor are they calculated into a student’s overall GPA.

Placement for Success

Students should review this table to determine course placement.

Placement Tests

If students feel that their placement scores do not accurately reflect their ability, they are encouraged to spend some time reviewing subject material and re-take their ACT/SAT or take the Accuplacer (English and Reading) or ALEKS (Math) placement test(s) which are free assessments available in the college's testing centers.

See this flyer for more information about a placement test prep consultation.
