Running Start students wishing to enroll in FVCC courses
If you took the ACT test in the last two years, you may not need to take the Reading & Writing Placement. The following ACT scores enable you to directly enter college level courses and skip the Reading & Writing Placement:
- 7 or higher on the ACT Writing all other years, or
- 18 or higher on the ACT English
If you are transferring to FVCC with college credit for writing, and/or you earned AP or IB credit for English, Language or Literature test scores, you will not be required to take the Reading & Writing Placement.
