EdReady Math and English Placement

JSU wants to save you time and money by offering the no cost, individualized JSU EdReady Math and English Placement!

Who Takes JSU EdReady Placement?

Math EdReady: All entering students who have not successfully completed or been awarded their first math credit are required to take EdReady.

  • Math exemption information is provided on our math placement website's FAQ's.  Please use the link provided at the bottom of this page for further information on mathematics exemptions. 

English EdReady: All entering students without an ACT/SAT score are required to take English EdReady for First Year Composition Placement.

  • Additionally, students entering with an English ACT sub-test score of 17 or below, or an SAT sub-test score of 420 or below who take English EdReady and reach the appropriate target score will be eligible to choose from the First Year Composition options mentioned below.
  • Achieving a score of 90 on the English EdReady study path will provide the option of taking EH 101 or EH 105 with EH 115. EH 101 is the regular composition track, while EH 105 is the composition track for students who prefer a slower pace and extra help with writing. Both courses are the same number of credit hours and count toward a degree. The individualized assistance is free of charge through the required EH 115 studio (co-requisite for EH 105), and EH 115 is free.
  • You may use the English placement link provided at the bottom of this page, or visit the First Year Writing website http://www.jsu.edu/english/first-year-writing.html to learn more about our English options.

Note:  Students entering with English sub-test scores of ACT 17 or below/SAT 420 or below who do not attempt English EdReady, or do not meet the target score of 90, place into EH 105 with EH 115.
