CAS Standards

The Student Development and Special Services unit uses national standards for practice in Student Development created by the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS). CAS collaborates with specific professional associations to create national best practice guidelines in each area. Southern uses these best practices as one way to judge our work.

Academic Skills Assessment

What is a placement assessment and how is it used?

Placement assessments are tools that measure your current skills in reading, writing, math, and general computer use. Southern uses scores from the assessments to place students in their English, Math, and Science classes. Some courses have placement score requirements students must meet before entering.
