Placement Tests and Transfer Credits

Technology Foundations/Technical College Learning Support

All new students must complete the WorkKeys Curriculum Placement Tests to assess their current skill levels in applied mathematics, graphic literacy, and reading for information. The results of these placement tests will determine if students need to attend a Technology Foundations class to improve math and/or reading skills. Students will work at their own place and exit the program once they achieve a designated skill level.

Credit for Previous Training/Work Experience

Training completed in high school or at technical institutes, colleges and other training situations, such as business, industry, and the military, will be evaluated toward completion requirements where applicable. In order to request credit for previous training, students may be asked to provide one or more of the following:

  • Testing: The program instructor may request that the student demonstrate proficiency through oral or written exams, and/or skill performance.
  • Transcripts: The program instructor will review the student’s official educational transcripts and grant credit for previous coursework as appropriate.

Prior Credit Evaluation Process

When a student requests credit for prior education/training or experiences, a few sources of prior credit may be reviewed by instructors for recommendation for the student to receive credit towards a course in a program of study offered by the college.

HESI Assessment for Allied Health

The HESI Assessment is used as a placement test for students who are wishing to enroll in any Allied Health course.  Students must meet or exceed the scores required per program in order to apply to Allied Health courses.

HESI is a new subject for the Tennessee College of Applied Technology – Murfreesboro, and to help prepare students as well as our employees, we have written a guide to help assist in the process before the exam, during the exam, and what happens after the exam.
