Non-Exempt Students


  • For non-exempt students, testing is required for all degrees, applicable certificates, and accelerated programs. Testing is also required for non-exempt non-degree seeking students planning to take courses with prerequisites requiring college-level placement.
  • FSW accepts the highest test scores from any test or combination of tests. This includes any combination of P.E.R.T., ACT, or SAT (see chart below). The scores are valid for two years.
  • Schedule an appointment to take the P.E.R.T. at your FSW location.
  • Non-exempt students who are ineligible to take the P.E.R.T. and cannot provide current test scores or transcripts can speak with an Academic Advisor about completing a Petition for Exemption Form via documented Student Achievement.
