If students' scores on the placement tests indicate that they need to strengthen skills in certain areas, they will be advised to enroll in the appropriate basic skills courses. Students are required to register for these courses the first semester of their freshman year. The basic skills courses offered are as follows: Reading
Writing Foundations for College Writing Placement in the course is based on the SAT Writing or the ACT Combined English/Composition scores. For more information about placement, including placement reevaluation, go the Writing Arts FirstYear Writing Program webpage (http://www.rowan.edu/colleges/ccca/departments/writingArts/firstyearwriting.html).
Algebra
The Basic Algebra I course is the first course in the developmental mathematics sequence at Rowan University. The course is intended to prepare students for entry and successful completion of the Basic Algebra II course. Students whose Accuplacer scores indicate need for developmental math are required to complete both Basic Algebra I and Basic Algebra II (as deemed by placement) before moving on to any college level math course. Basic Algebra I is a 2credit course. However, the credits do not count toward general electives, mathematics requirements, grade point average, nor any cumulative university averages. The course is graded on a Satisfactory (S)/Unsatisfactory (U) scale. The Basic Algebra II course is the second course in the developmental mathematics sequence at Rowan University. Students whose Accuplacer scores indicate need for developmental math are required to complete both Basic Algebra I and Basic Algebra II (as deemed by placement) before moving on to any college level math course. Basic Algebra II is a 2credit course. However, the credits do not count toward general electives, mathematics requirements, grade point average, nor any cumulative university averages. The course is graded on a Satisfactory (S)/Unsatisfactory (U) scale. NOTE: Students do not receive graduation credit for passing basic skills courses. Tuition for basic skills courses is the same as for collegelevel courses. Grades
These grades are not included in the Grade Point Average. Policy Students who do not complete the basic skills requirement within one year will be recommended for suspension from the university. COLLEGE MATH Determined by CLM (College Level Math test) score. Must be taken by students in the following majors: Computer Science, Math, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Business Administration, or by any student who wishes to register for a math course at the level of Calculus or higher.
Score Ranges College Math Placement CLM= 60 or above Calculus (1703 – 130) or Calculus: T/A (1703 – 125)
