Placement Testing

    The Center for Academic Resources and Support (CARS) provides college placement and diagnostic testing for all students entering the university who have not taken the SAT or ACT, and for students whose SAT/ACT scores fall below the university’s requirements. FMU uses the Postsecondary Educational Readiness Test (PERT) for college placement in reading, writing, and mathematics.

    For accurate course placement for your first semester, you must provide one of the following:

    • SAT scores equal to or greater than 24 for Math, 25 for Writing, and 24 for Reading
    • ACT scores equal to or greater than 19 for Math, 17 for Writing, and 19 for Reading
    • Official transcript showing successful completion of college-level English and Math
    • Completion of the PERT exam(s) via Florida Memorial University for Math, Writing, and Reading.
