ATTENTION – If you have not provided your high school transcript and/or ACT/SAT/PSAT scores that are less than 5 years old to KCC, do so prior to testing. Sufficient test scores and high school transcripts with a final cumulative, non-weighted GPA of 3.0 or higher may eliminate or reduce the number of placement test sections you need to take. Also, send your official college/university transcript(s), as an evaluation may determine transfer credits and/or may reduce or eliminate the need to complete testing.
