Decide on the Learning Path that is right for you
There is only one English Path: College English Placement.
This learning path covers reading, grammar, and writing skills to prepare and place students into the most appropriate UHCC English or ESL course. You can complete this EdReady diagnostic and study path to earn a placement score (target score is 64 to 100) to register for English courses and college courses requiring English readiness.
|UHCC LEARNING PATHS||TARGET SCORE||PLACEMENT INTO|
|English Path 1: College English||64||ENG 100, 102|
|Math Path 1: Non-STEM/College Math||72||Math 100, 111, 115, College Math|
|Math Path 2: STEM/Algebra||72||Math 103: Algebra|
|Math Path 3: STEM/Calculus||85||Math 241: Calculus|
There are three Math Paths. Please contact a campus counselor for guidance on which Math Path may right for you.
Math Path 1: Non-STEM/College Math Placement.
This learning path is recommended for all students in Non-STEM programs that do not require College Algebra or Calculus. This includes students pursuing Social Sciences, Arts & Humanities, Nursing, Education, and Career & Technical Education programs.
