Challenging Your English or Math Placements
Your math and English placements were determined by any standardized test scores or transfer work submitted to CBU prior to admission.
Students must register into the class they were placed to complete their initial enrollment.
Placed into ENG113E?
If your placement is the 4-unit ENG113E and you are currently enrolled in or have completed what you believe to be a college-level composition course, or if you have taken the AP Language and Composition exam, speak with your advisor. Transfer courses and exam scores may affect placement.
If your placement is the 4-unit ENG113E and you submitted your SAT, ACT or CLT exam scores to CBU, then this is your placement. You can challenge this placement by taking the English Placement Challenge exam offered by Modern Languages and Literature. Contact Professor Jennifer Tronti at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your placement is the 4-unit ENG113E and you did not submit SAT, ACT or CLT exam scores, this is your placement. You are free to challange this placement by taking the Accuplacer exam offered through the Office of Student Success bookings link.
Placed into ENG113?
If your placement is ENG113 but you feel you should have been placed into ENG123, you can take a challenge exam prepared by the CBU Department of Modern Languages & Literature. Those interested in taking this exam, contact Professor Jennifer Tronti (email@example.com).
Placed into ENG123?
If your placement is ENG123, this is the class in which you will need to register. One cannot challenge out of ENG123. Students who pass the challenge exam noted above will be permitted to register into ENG123.
Additionally, any test scores, transfer work, or AP English Language and Composition scores submitted after initial registration may result in a change to your composition placement. Your staff academic advisor will reach out to you if this is the case.
Your math placement has been determined based on standardized test scores, transfer coursework, or AP Calculus scores you may have submitted to CBU. If you would like to see if you can place into a higher level math course, you are free to take the Mobius Maa Math Placement Exam. Additionally, test scores or transfer work submitted during or after online orientation may result in a change to your math placement. Your staff academic advisor will reach out to you if this is the case.
If you have any questions, please contact your Academic Advisor.
