English Placement

All entering students who have not successfully completed or been awarded credit for EH 101 are REQUIRED to submit scores from the ACT/SAT and attempt English EdReady.  Students whose ACT/SAT subtest scores place them into EH 100 that achieve a score of 90+ on the English EdReady study path will save time and money by earning direct placement into EH 101.

Note: Placement exams do not have to be taken on campus.  You may access your placement exams anytime through your myJSU by clicking the placement exams tab located within the links provided on your myJSU homepage.
