**Free Assessment for Developmental Course Requirements 

All Kentucky public colleges and universities are mandated by the Council on Post-Secondary Education to enroll students in appropriate developmental courses when the students' ACT scores are below 18 in English, below 19 in Mathematics, and/or below 20 in Reading. 

Students with a score below 20 in Reading (ACT's 3rd score) are required to take a reading placement test prior to, or while attending orientation. A strong score on this reading test allows a student to be placed into a higher level course. Similar tests are available for English and Mathematics. Bring a copy of all ACT scores to your orientation session if you plan to take one of the assessment tests.
