Taking English or math 100-level courses?

High school students interested in taking a 100-level Math or English class (for example, Ma 101, Ma 102, En 102) should send their ACT scores to Admission prior to registering. BJU requires these scores to ensure that each of our students is placed into the appropriate class and given the best opportunity to succeed. If an ACT score is not available, a placement test should be completed. Please contact your admission counselor to schedule a placement test.
