Placement Requirements

Making sure students get off on the right foot is extremely important to us. That’s why all Eastern Iowa Community Colleges students are required to complete our placement process. It makes sure you are placed in the appropriate classes right from the start.

For English and Reading Placement you have four options:

  • Submit Your High School Transcripts
    OR
  • Submit Your ACT Scores
    OR
  • Submit Your SAT Scores
    Or
  • Submit Your HiSET Scores


For Math Placement there are three options:

  • Submit Your ACT Scores with a Math Score of 22 or Higher
    OR
  • Submit Your SAT Scores with a Math Score of 500 or Higher
    OR
  • Complete the ALEKS* Math Placement through the college

* You can find more information about ALEKS here, or feel free to call us at the numbers below and we'll be happy to explain the process.

If you’ve already completed a college level math or English course with a C grade or better, you may be exempt from submitting the corresponding information above.

You’re encouraged to speak with a college admissions coordinator or advisor to discuss options. Working with an advisor, students may be approved to use other methods to complete the placement requirement such as the SAT or Accuplacer scores.
