OPTION A: BECOME COLLEGE-LEVEL IN COMPOSITION AND MATHEMATICS
If you can demonstrate that you are college-level prior to the first day of class at Fort Lewis, you will fulfill your conditions for admission. Within Option A, there are two ways to demonstrate you are college-level:
Option A #1: Re-test. The ACT, the SAT, and the Accuplacer are acceptable tests. The scores you must earn are listed below.
English (only if your score is below this level)
ACT English: 18, or
SAT Critical Reading: 430, or
Accuplacer Sentence Skills : 94
Mathematics (only if your score is below this level)
ACT Mathematics: 19, or
SAT Mathematics: 460, or
Accuplacer Elementary Algebra: 85
Option A #2: Complete the required remedial courses at a regionally accredited community college with a grade of C- or higher. Check with the Fort Lewis College Office of Student Success prior to enrollment to verify you have selected the correct remedial course.
If you either re-test or successfully complete the required remedial course at a college, you will need to send official record of your test/transcripts to Fort Lewis College by the first day of class at Fort Lewis.
OPTION B: PARTICIPATE IN A STUDENT SUCCESS PROGRAM
If you do not demonstrate you are college-level prior to the first day of class, you are required to participate in an academic success program during your freshman year. Your specific requirements will be addressed in a Student Success Contract. Generally, these expectations include:
- Mandatory enrollment in the appropriate remedial courses in the fall semester;
- Restrictions on courses you are allowed to take while remediating in the fall semester;
- Study skills evaluation in the fall semester;
- Required tutoring if identified by any professor as being at risk for not successfully completing a course fall during your first year;
- Development of an academic degree plan
