Writing Placement Testing
During Jump Start Days, students that come to campus have the opportunity to take a writing placement test. If we do not have an ACT or SAT score on file that places you in College Composition I, or proof that you have taken the course during high school then the writing placement test will be added to your schedule for an on-campus Jump Start Day.
Students not traveling to campus for a Jump Start Day may take a writing placement test, if needed, during Orientation Week in August.
To register & participate in a Jump Start Day, you must:
Have applied and been accepted to Sterling College
Pay your Housing Deposit (Deposits must be paid before you register for Jump Start Day)
