Course Placement

Western Piedmont Community College uses multiple methods - such as high school grade point average, ACT and SAT scores, GED (since 2014) and HiSET exam scores, placement test scores (all within the last ten years) and/or transfer course credit - to determine whether students need additional preparation before attempting college-level math and English courses as well as some courses in other disciplines. In addition, some programs have requirements that vary from those of the general college and should be explained by a counselor or academic advisor. 

Contact the Director of Career & Testing Services, 828-448-3155, with questions regarding placement testing or see section on Placement Testing.
