  • ASSET Testing

    DO YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE ASSET TEST(S)?

    Although you have met the admission requirements to attend West Liberty University, we wanted to make you aware of additional requirements affecting your enrollment in college level math and English courses. The Higher Education Policy Commission in West Virginia has established a policy, which requires entering students to achieve certain test scores prior to being able to enter college level English and math courses.

     

    Before being able to register for a college level English course, students much achieve a score of:

     

    ·         18 or above on the English section of the Enhanced ACT, OR

    ·         450 or above on the verbal portion of the SAT, OR

    ·         38 or above on the writing skills test of the ASSET (this test will be offered by West Liberty University during the summer months), OR

    ·         71 or above scaled score on the COMPASS® English (writing skills).

     

    If you have achieved, or will achieve, one of the above scores, you will be enrolled in an Integrated section of English 101, with additional enrichment than a traditional English 101 course.

     

    Before being able to register for a college level mathematics course, students must achieve a score of:

     

    ·         19 or above on the mathematics section of the Enhanced ACT, OR

    ·         460 or above on the mathematics portion of the SAT, OR

    ·         59 or above scaled score on the COMPASS® Pre-Algebra and 36 or above scaled score on the COMPASS® Algebra test.

     

    If you have achieved, or will achieve one of the above score, you will be eligible to enroll in a college level math course. If you do not achieve one of the above scores, you must successfully complete Math 046, Fundamental Algebra, at West Liberty University prior to enrolling in a college level math course.

     

    Transfer students are subject to this policy unless they have already completed college level math and English courses at their previous institution.
