Contact Program Advising for entrance requirements questions.
Note: Business and Trades Programs may require different tests.
These tests are not an effective option if you have never taken the prerequisite course or some close equivalent. Success on these tests requires you to demonstrate knowledge and skills at the appropriate level. If you have not learned the material thoroughly at one time and recently reviewed it in detail, it is unlikely you will achieve an adequate grade on these tests.
