Assess your college readiness

Before you register for classes at Montco, we need to determine what academic level your courses should be. To do this, we look at your high school transcripts, prior academic experiences, performance on standardized tests and college assessments.

Submit your standardized test scores and transcripts to Montco as early as possible. Depending on your result, you may qualify for exemption from college assessment.


We consider the following documents when placing students: 

  • SAT and/or ACT scores
  • Advanced Placement (AP) exam scores
  • High school transcripts
  • College transcripts
  • CLEP exams
  • Cambridge International exam
  • DSST exams
  • International Baccalaureate ® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) transcript
  • TOEFL exam

Next steps

  • Determine if you are exempt from placement assessments. Learn more.
  • Submit your academic transcripts from high school and/or college, if applicable, via our secure file upload.
    • If you do not have access to a high school transcript, you may submit your last four years’ worth of report cards and/or SAT/ACT scores.
    • If you have been out of high school for more than 10 years or do not have access to high school transcripts, please contact an academic advisor to help determine appropriate placement.
