What placement testing do I need?
Have you taken the online ALEKS math placement test?
Since BSBA majors require more than introductory math, you must take the ALEKS assessment. You should have received several notifications about this.
Students who have not transferred in MAT 105 (College Algebra) MUST take the placement test. If you score 61 or better within 5 tries this allows us to enroll you in several core business courses. You can access the placement test at www.kutztown.edu/mathplacement.
Have you taken the online ITCCA exam?
The Business Information Technology Concepts and Computer Applications Assessment (ITCCA) is required for all students who have not already taken BUS 171 or CSC 101 or its equivalent. Otherwise, Students must take and pass the ITCCA prior to registering for BUS 275: Business Data Management and Information Systems and several other required courses. You can access the exam at www.kutztown.edu/ITCCA.
