Reading Proficiency Prerequisite
Many of the courses in this catalog include a prerequisite of “Reading Proficiency.” This means that before a student can enroll in one of these courses, they must demonstrate the ability to read at the college level. This ability will give the student a much better chance to pass the course as many courses require reading.
A student can meet the Reading Proficiency prerequisite by satisfying any of the following:
- ACT sub-score of 18 or higher in the area of reading
- SAT verbal score of 500 or higher
- Accuplacer Next Generation reading score of 250 or higher
- High school GPA of 2.6 or higher
- Completion of 3 or more college-level credits at a “C” or higher
- College-level credits are those that are numbered 100 level or higher.
Students who do not meet Reading Proficiency in any of these ways must enroll for RDG 079 and the co-requisite, if eligible. Otherwise, enrollment in RDG 030 will be needed. Students who are not native speakers of English can meet this prerequisite with at least a “C” in ENG 070.
