 Test scores are only valid for two semesters. Scores received before November 2013 are no longer valid.
 A grade of "C" or greater in a course with an equivalent or higher diagnostic test prerequisite taken through the Math Department at Sacramento State may be used in place of a diagnostic test score for two semesters from the end of the course. Course grades for courses taken in Fall 2013 or Spring 2014 may be used.
 Mathematics and statistics courses with IAD and CR test prerequisites can be registered before taking the test, however, a passing test score must be presented to the instructor by the first class meeting of the second week in order to stay in the class.
If for some reason you or a tutor cannot find your score, fill out an "I Can't Find My Score" form and leave it at the table outside BRH 118. Or contact Professor Morris in BRH 118 (morrisb@csus.edu).
