Placement Testing

IRSC strongly encourages all students to take advantage of placement testing to ensure appropriate placement into developmental or college-level courses in English, reading, and math. The P.E.R.T. is administered by IRSC for this purpose.

Students with ACT scores of Reading 19, English 17, Math 19 or SAT scores taken before March 1, 2016, of Verbal 440, Math 440 or higher, or SAT scores taken between March 1, 2016, and January 24, 2017, of Critical Reading 24 or higher, Math 24 or higher, or SAT scores taken after January 24, 2017, of Critical Reading 24 or higher, SAT Writing & Language 25, Math 24 or higher,  may be exempt from taking the P.E.R.T.

Students who graduated from a Florida public high school since 2007 and students who are serving as an active duty member of any branch of the United States armed services are exempt from mandatory placement testing.

The P.E.R.T. is offered daily at each campus. Photo identification is required. Testing schedules are available at www.irsc.edu and at all IRSC campuses.
