Entrance Assessment Requirements: IMPORTANT: It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that the assessment levels are cleared through our Assessment Office either by testing, transcripts or a college degree. BIT applications may still be turned in to the BIT Office before assessment is cleared but you will not be accepted into the Program until the Basic Skills Levels have been cleared. The first 75 students who have applied through the BIT Office and have cleared their assessment will be accepted.
If the applicant does not meet the recommended assessment signing the Placement Level Waiver on the application will waive the recommended levels. A Placement Level Waiver will allow the student to still be accepted into the Program under the advisement that he/she will need to make additional effort that may be necessary for satisfactory completion ("C" or better) of the Program.
