Stark State College admissions policy adjustments remove current barriers to summer and fall enrollment

(North Canton, OH – March 27, 2020) – National college testing is on hold, but Stark State College isn’t letting that be a barrier to students who want to get on the path to their career.

While ACT testing dates have been postponed and Accuplacer tests are currently unavailable as the campus operates in an all-online environment, Stark State has temporarily modified its admissions policy to “test optional.”

“We are not going to hold students up from completing the application process and registering for classes for summer and fall 2020,” said J.P. Cooney, executive director of admissions and enrollment strategies. “Accuplacer and ACT are not available to students at the moment, but students can still apply and be admitted.”

College officials will use multiple measures in assessing a student’s transcripts to determine course placement, and once normal operations – and testing – resume, students can, without penalty, change their course placements if needed.
