PLACEMENT INFORMATION

Mesabi Range College uses a student’s cumulative high school Grade Point Average (GPA) in order to place students appropriately into college-level courses.

  • Students must have a 2.6 cumulative GPA in order to be considered college-ready in reading and English.
  • Students must have a 2.8 cumulative GPA (PLUS have passed Advanced Algebra with a C- or better) to be considered college-ready for math.

MCA, ACT, and SAT test scores may be considered through our Multiple Measures program, as well. If students do not fall into the college-ready category, remedial classes will be assigned during their first semester to assist learning in specific areas. Students who have been out of the educational pipeline for more than 10 years, or who have obtained a GED, may take an ACCUPLACER Placement Exam to assist with appropriate placement into courses.
