YOU WILL NEED PLACEMENT TEST SCORES (ACT, SAT, PERT or CPT)that are no more than two years old.
(There are only 3 exceptions......See below)
If you have not taken the ACT or SAT and would like to sign up to take the PERT test, contact CF's Testing Center at 352-854-2322, ext. 1564 or 1395.
If you are enrolling in a vocational program, you may be required to take the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) test within the first six weeks of enrollment.
Exceptions to the Test Score requirement:
If you are a Transfer student, you will not need to have placement scores as long as you have successfully completed a college-level English and math course. If you are missing either of these, you will need to supply CF with placement scores taken within the past 2 years or take the PERT exam in that area.
If you are a Transient student, you will not need placement scores if you provide us with an approved transient form from your home institution giving you permission to take specific courses.
