Placement Testing

Course Placement

The College of Southern Idaho (CSI) is an open-door, equal opportunity institution. We welcome all students who can benefit from our educational programs and services regardless of age, race, color, national origin, sex, religion, and/or disability. We are also committed to providing all eligible students access to appropriate educational offerings. The College accepts the following placement information in order to assist students with the selection of appropriate level courses in the educational planning process: Write Class, ACT (American College Testing), SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test), Dual Credit, Alternative Credit, and Transfer Credit.
All students, degree and non-degree seeking, at the College of Southern Idaho, are encouraged to submit placement information prior to enrolling in courses that require math or English placement. The score results are used during the educational planning process to assist students in selecting appropriate level courses in which there is a reasonable probability that they will be successful. Certain courses and program-specific admissions criteria require specific course placement level attainment. Refer to the catalog’s curriculum and program description sections for details. Placement scores are valid for three years from the testing date.
The College provides testing facilities and you are encouraged to contact the Campus Testing Center for more information on placement test availability. You are strongly encouraged to discuss any placement questions relating to your college studies with your major faculty advisor.

The Write Class

The Write Class Placement survey is used for English placement here at CSI. The Write Class gathers information from students about previous writing experiences and gives the student a clear set of expectations for each of the composition courses offered at CSI. Write Class placement is offered through an online environment and does not require a proctor to be completed. To complete the Write Class survey, click on the link provided.
