English

If you who have already completed English placement testing or college-level English courses at another institution you may not need to test. Bring unofficial transcripts or placement test results to the Advising office or a START New Student Orientation for review.  You will need to re-test if your English placement test scores are more than two years old.  (See the Health & Human Services Division regarding program entrance and testing policies for their programs.)

*For information regarding reciprocity, see the Advising Office or International Programs Office.

See the Testing website: https://northseattle.edu/testing/calculate-your-english-placement or Advising for details about score conversion and placement

ESL:  North does not accept ESL test scores or courses from other schools for placement into North ESL classes.  You will need to take the ESL test at North.

Math

Other Colleges:  We accept math results from most placement tests given by accredited colleges or universities in the U.S.* Students retest if their math scores are more than 1 year old.  

Seattle Public Schools Students: Use your high school transcript for placement into intermediate algebra or college level math. Find more information on our website at:  https://northseattle.edu/scores/placement-test-scores

ACT and SAT Math – Bring score reports to the Advising Office or a START New Student Orientation.

Qualifying college-level math courses with a grade of 2.0 or better, completed within 1 year or completed within the last year, may be used for placement.  Bring unofficial transcripts to the Advising Office or a START New Student Orientation for review.  (See the Health & Human Services Division regarding program entrance and testing policies, which may differ from the above.)
