    There are many courses a CCP student can consider, without testing with ACCUPLACER or ACT.

    However, regardless of GPA, some courses require a testing assessment (ACT or ACCUPLACER) for placement and registration in the course (or completion of a prerequisite course sequence).

    See the next section for course examples with placement score requirements.
