Start your college journey off on the right foot!

Completing English and Math during your first year is important to your college success.

Math Placement

We want you to take the math you need for your degree and have the support you need to succeed. With two questions (no math involved!), we can point you in the correct direction.


Fill out the Math Placement Survey here!


The survey will recommend whether you should:

  • Take a support clinic alongside a regular math course that will give you extra support to help you succeed. 

  • Take a placement exam that will determine which course to take.

Please meet with your academic advisor before making a decision. Contact information is available at

English Placement

RCBC uses several factors, including test scores, high school work and grades, to determine the correct course for you to take. College advisors will take this information from your transcript to place you in the right course. Click here for more information about these factors, known as Multiple Measures.

You must take a placement exam if you cannot be placed off the Multiple Measures chart or graduated before  2008 for English.

If you disagree with your placement, you can take a placement exam to try to improve it.
