For applicants under the age of 21 the ACT/ACT residual math score will be used. Math proficiency is classified as a DSPM 0800 level competency or higher, or comparable ACT score. All test scores must be less than 3 years old. Testing can be scheduled through the Counseling and Testing Office at WSCC, 423-585-6800.
