MCA SCORES OF CURRENT 10TH AND 11TH GRADERS CAN BE USED TO TEST OUT OF REMEDIAL COURSES AT MINNESOTA STATE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES STARTING IN 2018-19.

The Minnesota Department of Education has issued notice that starting in 2018-19, students who are at or above the identified scores outlined below are expected to be able to successfully complete credit-bearing coursework without the need for remediation.

Students with scores above the ranges indicated below must not be required to take remedial, non-credit courses in the corresponding subject area at Minnesota State Colleges and Universities.

As MCA scores will start being used in this way in 2018-19, current juniors and sophomores who are taking the MCAs this year will be able to take advantage of this new policy.
