Mandatory Course Placement Procedure

Mandatory Placement - UMC requires ACT scores from all entering students with fewer than 26 semester credit hours. To facilitate student success, ACT scores are used to determine appropriate, mandatory placement in specific courses. Students must earn a "C" or above in any mandatory class before registering for a higher-level class in that subject area.
