Students should check the course descriptions for required prerequisites.

Before a student can be accepted into the Process Plant Technology Program, competency in Math and English must be demonstrated. This may be done by:

  • Receiving a passing score on the Compass Placement Test that indicates adequate preparation to enroll in WRIT 121/122 and MATH 114

  • Transfer of appropriate credits

  • Current ACT/SAT scores in the required range showing readiness to take WRIT 121/122 and M 114

If none of the above criteria are met, a student must complete the necessary prerequisite English and math classes identified in the catalog (WRIT 104 and/or M 095).

 

Check with the Advising Center to determine how you can meet these requirements.
