Assessment

We need to determine the level of your reading, writing and math skills in order to place you in the appropriate classes.  We can measure this in several different ways, including previous college credit you've earned, SAT/PSAT or ACT scores, high school GPA or through an assessment tool called Accuplacer.

You can complete assessment in any of the following four ways:

Have you already taken the ACT, SAT or PSAT? Generally scores of 460 or higher on each section of the SAT, 46 or higher on each section of the PSAT, or 17 in English, 18 in reading, 18 in math or higher on each section of the ACT can be accepted for your assessment if they were completed within the last four years. Click here for more on ACT, SAT and PSAT scores.
Generally, a high school cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale will meet the assessment requirement if this was your final GPA at the time of graduation and if you completed high school within the last two years. You must have graduated with a Core 40, Technical Honors, or Academic Honors diploma or equivalent. High school seniors who have not yet graduated can use the cumulative GPA after seven high school semesters have been completed.  Bring a copy of your high school transcripts to campus or click here to find out where to send your high school transcripts.
Have you already earned college credits or an Associate degree at another college or university? If so, submit your college transcripts to the Admission's Office. General education courses taken at another regionally accredited institution, with a grade of "C-" or higher, may be used to waive the ACCUPLACER exam.


If you do not have previous college credit, an ACT, SAT or PSAT score, or a cumulative high school GPA that satisfies the assessment requirement, you will need to take the ACCUPLACER skills assessment. Your scores on the Accuplacer determine which writing, reading and math classes you'll take first. You must meet certain scores in order to place into college-level classes. The Accuplacer is free and may be taken up to a maximum of three times per calendar year. To schedule an appointment to take the Accuplacer, scroll down and click on your campus below.

Brush up on your skills! The higher you score, the fewer classes you'll have to take, which will save you time and money in the long run.


On the day you take the Accuplacer assessment:

  • Allot 3 hours to take the test.
  • Bring a photo ID and your student number (C#)
  • Cell phones and pagers must be turned off and put away
  • Children are not permitted
  • Calculators are not permitted
  • Prospective students with a documented disability should contact Disability Support Services for accommodations on the assessment.
  • Each student will receive an individual report with their assessment scores and course placement information. Any questions about course placements should be directed towards your advisor.
