At FSCJ, there are different ways to determine your placement:
SAT: If you took the SAT in the last two years, log in to Collegeboard.org to send your official score report to FSCJ, or you can visit a campus Assessment Center to have your scores loaded. You'll need to know your login to Collegeboard.org, and you won't have to pay to have your scores sent!
ACT: If you took the ACT in the last two years, log in to ACT.org to send your official score report to FSCJ, or you can visit a campus Assessment Center to have your scores loaded. You'll need to know your login to ACT.org, and you won't have to pay to have your scores sent!
ACCUPLACER Next Generation: This test helps determine your readiness for college-level courses. It covers Reading, Writing, Quantitative Reasoning-Algebra and Statistics (QAS), and Next Generation Advanced Algebra and Functions (AAF).
P.E.R.T. (Postsecondary Education Readiness Test): This test assesses your skills in English, Math and Reading. It's not about passing or failing but helps place you in the right starting classes for success at FSCJ.
*You can schedule an appointment to take the Accuplacer Next Generation or P.E.R.T. by visiting fscj.edu/assessment. FSCJ Assessment and Certification Center staff can help you determine which placement exam best meets your needs.
If you've taken college English and Math at another college/university, send your official transcripts to FSCJ for evaluation. You can have them sent electronically from a transcript provider using email@example.com. FSCJ’s mailing address is P.O. Box 40515, Jacksonville, FL 32203.
International transcripts require a NACES evaluation. Please visit NACES.org to locate a member.
