The Freshman Assessment and Placement Program prescribes statewide minimum standards for determining whether entering freshmen should be placed in college level math and composition courses or in college preparatory courses in math, composition, and reading. ASUMH students whose scores indicate placement in college preparatory classes must enroll in those courses during their first fifteen (15) hours of course work. Students in all associate's degree and technical certificate programs are required to take and complete all required college preparatory classes. Contact the Schliemann Learning Center at (870) 5086371 to schedule an appointment for admissions testing.
