Testing Offered through the Assessment Center

Placement Testing

Entering students with ACT subtest scores below 19 in English, math and/or reading must fulfill remedial requirements. This may be accomplished by:

  1. Earning a satisfactory grade on appropriate placement tests, or,
  2. Successfully completing the appropriate remedial courses.

Placement tests help ensure that students enroll in suitable course levels. These tests are available at no charge. To schedule a test, please call the Assessment Center on the Weatherford Campus at 580-774-7084; or, the Sayre Campus at 580-928-5533, ext. 131. For admission to test, students MUST present current photo ID (SWOSU ID, driver's license, state ID, tribal ID, or passport). Photo ID cannot be expired and/or must have been issued within the last two years.

A re-test in each subject is allowed after a minimum of two weeks. Students who do not pass the initial placement test and/or re-test must enroll in the appropriate remedial courses. Students receiving a grade of Unsatisfactory in a required remedial class may re-test once before re-enrolling in the remedial course (by the end of the first day of class).

Students must successfully remediate basic skills course requirements within the first 24 semester hours attempted or have enrollment restricted until the deficiencies are removed. Students must enroll in all required remedial courses during their first semester at Southwestern and remain enrolled in remedial courses each semester until all deficiencies are cleared.
