Initial reading course placement is based on your highest ACT or SAT reading sub-score. In accordance with a state-wide, college-readiness standard in college reading, students with an ACT reading sub-score of 19 and below must take the Reading COMPASS exam. Students who subsequently score less than 85 on the COMPASS Reading exam will be placed in GEN 105, Special Topics in Supplemented College Reading.
• GEN 105 provides an intervention for college reading.

Students receive 1 hour of elective college credit for GEN 105. Students will receive 3 hours of college credit for successful completion of the general education course section linked to GEN 105.
• Students enrolled in GEN 105 will attend the general education lecture course for 3 hours each week and will attend GEN 105 for 2 hours each week. Students will attend a total number of 5 hours of class each week for these courses.
