ACCUPLACER Testing

Starting Summer 2020: Helena College will not be requiring placement test scores for students interested in classes that previously required ACT or ACCUPLACER scores.

For dual enrollment students: Helena College will work with each high school individually to ensure students are placed in the appropriate dual credit class.  Placement tests for writing will no longer be required, and any eligible dual enrollment student may take College Writing (WRIT 101) or Technical Writing (WRIT 121) going forward.  Math placement will rely on factors such as high school courses completed and grades in relevant coursework.
Dual enrollment students interested in taking a math class should talk to their high school counselor or to Helena College's Director of K-12 Partnerships, Stephanie Hunthausen stephanie.hunthausen@helenacollege.edu, to discuss the appropriate placement.  Please see http://helenacollege.edu/admissions_enrollment/highschool.aspx for more information.
