Testing:

The Texas State Education Code requires that all students who enter public institutions of higher education be tested for reading, writing and mathematics skills. Test scores are used to place students in courses that are appropriate to their current level of knowledge in each of the three areas. These tests are not admission tests; no student is denied admission to Navarro College on the basis of test results. All students who are not exempt must take one of the approved placement tests prior to enrolling in classes. To be exempt from the test, you must meet specific scores on the ACT, SAT, or TAKS tests. If you are not exempt, several approved tests are administered by Navarro College including Accuplacer and THEA. Selecting the best placement test, for you depends on several factors. Students should consult Testing Center personnel. Most tests cost approximately $29.
