Pictures of Allen Community College Students

Concurrent

(Revised April 18, 2017)

All first-time students not having an ACT score less than 3 years old are required to take the ACCUPLACER/ASSET assessment, which directs them into the appropriate entry-level courses. These scores provide proper placement into English, Mathematics, and Science classes as well as furnish information in reading skills. Students enrolled in pre-college level classes will be required to successfully demonstrate mastery of competencies at the pre-college level as a prerequisite for registration in general education courses. Successful completion of prerequisites is required for a student to move to the next level.  Successful completion is a "C" or above and qualifying compass score for developmental courses.
