What does exempt or nonexempt mean to me?

SCF wants all students to be successful and encourages all incoming students to take a placement test. 

The placement test is required for new students who:

  • Earned a GED or high school equivalency diploma
  • Graduated from a private high school
  • Graduated with a high school diploma as a home-schooled student
  • Graduated from a Florida public high school without earning a standard high school diploma
  • Graduated from an out-of-state high school
  • Entered the 9th grade in a Florida public high school prior to the 2003-2004 academic year
  • Are U.S. military reservist service members or veterans 

The placement test is optional for those students who:

  • Entered the 9th grade at a Florida public high school during the 2003-2004 school year or any year afterward AND graduated with a Florida standard high school diploma
  • Are currently a U.S. military active duty service member at the point of application.  U.S. military reservists are not classified as U.S military active duty service members.
  • Have taken and submitted SAT, ACT or P.E.R.T. test scores within the last two years.
