Study.com PERT Scholarship: Application Form & Information

Study.com PERT Scholarship

If you are entering the Florida college system for the first time, you may have to take a Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT) before signing up for your classes. The PERT is a diagnostic exam that will help the college find the English and mathematics classes that are right for you. You can't pass or fail the PERT, but you should still try your best on the test so you can start your freshman year on the right foot.

We here at Study.com we understand that starting college can be a little overwhelming. There's a lot on your plate, from registration and placement tests, to buying books and paying tuition. Our new PERT Scholarship is designed to help cover some of these costs so you can focus on doing your best. Read on and find out what we've got to offer and how you can apply!
