Placement Testing

Placement/Admittance tests must be taken by the following groups of students:

  • Students enrolling in ENG101 must make the qualifying score on the “WritePlacer” test.
  • Students enrolling in their initial MAT class must make the qualifying score in the “College Algebra” test.
  • All incoming freshman / sophomore must make the qualifying score in the “Reading” test.

If a new student falls into one of the above-mentioned categories, he/she must be “quick admitted” into Rio Salado College and receive their 8-digit Student ID #, in order to take the applicable test or tests.

*NOTE: YOU MUST KNOW YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER TO COMPLETE THIS PROCESS.
