Steps to Becoming an FKCC Student
1.
Transcripts
Request official college or high school transcripts be sent to
FKCC‘s Office of Enrollment Services.
2.
Placement Test
Florida Keys Community College primary placement test, the
Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT) is appropriate
for those who have not taken the SAT or ACT, or whose SAT or
ACT scores are more than two years old. PERT replaces the CPT.
The purpose of PERT is to help provide information about
your skills in the English language, reading, and mathematics.
Your test results will be used in the academic advising process
to ensure that you enroll in the appropriate levels of English
(
communication/humanities), reading, and mathematics
courses.
You may need to take the PERT, if you are a degree-seeking
student, a returning student who changes to degree-seeking
status, or as well as a non-degree seeking student who wishes
to enroll in English, reading, mathematics courses, or any course
requiring college level English or math as a prerequisite.
Please call one of the three location for testing dates or check
