New Student Course Placement

Congratulations on your acceptance to RCTC! If you have been admitted Spring 2022, you need to take the next steps to prepare for your course registration.  Students need to be evaluated for course placement prior to registering for classes.

Students can have their test scores and high school GPA considered for college placement. These items can be mailed OR emailed to

  1. Send test scores:
    • Students can verify test scores (ACT, SAT, MCA, or ALEKS) pulled out of their portal (unofficial test scores) with a College Transitions Advisor or high school Counselor and send to RCTC. Official ACT or SAT copies are also accepted when a student requests them from ACT or College Board. Test scores are valid for 5 years.
  2. Report your unweighted GPA:
    • If you did NOT fill out the “High School Grade Point Average” box in the online application, you can send an unofficial transcript to RCTC for placement.  High school GPA is valid for 10 years.

Students who have completed college-level English and/or Reading will need to submit official college transcripts prior to placement.

Students who do not have valid test scores or high school GPA will need to contact the Welcome and One Stop Center at or call 507.285.7557.
