New Policy 212.12 Placement Exam Retakes

Unless students have prior prerequisite college coursework or have taken a placement exam prior to entering Great Falls College MSU, students must take the Mathematics, Writing and Reading Placement exam in order to be correctly placed into GFC MSU courses requiring a placement score, thereby maximizing the likelihood of their success in those courses. Repeated retakes of the placement exam within a short span of time acts as a heuristic for taking that exam, leading to inaccurate placement scores and reduced course completion. To maintain accurate placement, this policy has been established to reduce or eliminate this heuristic effect by increasing the span of time between exam retakes.

Revised Policy 601.3 Tobacco Use

This policy is to promote the health, wellness, and safety of all employees, students, guests, visitors, and contractors while on campus property. The purpose of this policy is create a healthier learning environment.
