Ensure you Meet the College Course Prerequisites

Certain dual credit courses have college level Math and English placement prerequisites that will need to be met in order to qualify for registration by the college. Please refer to Ridgewood High School’s Dual Credit Course List to see if you meet the prerequisite placement level or will need to test to determine qualification.

  • If you don’t meet the placement prerequisites, you will need to complete the college’s ACCUPLACER Placement Exam to qualify for registration by the college:

    • The Triton Testing Center currently offers both on-campus and remote placement testing options through appointments which may be scheduled by clicking here (please read all directions and technical specifications carefully). For current hours of operation and practice materials, please visit our Testing Center webpage.

  • If you have met the prerequisites through other placement measures, (such as ACT or SAT scores, Transitional Math, or developmental education courses) your high school and the Office of Dual Credit will work together to have these connected to your Triton Student Account for registration by the college.

  • If your class does not have required placement measures, you will only need to have completed a dual credit application and be listed on the high school roster for registration by the college.

STEP # 3:

         Pass the course with a “C” or better!

        Your credit will show up on your Triton College transcript at the conclusion of the class!
