  • A maximum of two AALF Calculus Placement Tests can be taken in 365 days.
  • No credit is given for any course; only permission to take Calculus I is granted.
  • Students who score from 276 to 300, inclusive, will be given a signed Petition For Entry for Calc I at WCJC, which they can take to the Admissions Office to register.
