Placement Testing

ACCUPLACER Placement testing is offered as part of New Student Advising Days. Students must schedule to attend in advance. Immediately following testing, students will meet with an advisor and register for classes. Please plan to arrive on campus by 9:30am and to remain until approximately 3:30pm for same-day testing and registration.

Available Dates

Currently no dates scheduled.

Placement Testing is also available by scheduled appointment (outside of the dates listed above) between the hours of 9:30am-1:30pm. Students that test outside of New Student Advising Days will not register for classes that day; please plan to schedule a separate date for advising and registration.

If you are not exempt from placement, please register by calling 866-554-2773, extension 3715. Please schedule 48 hours in advance and do not attend without making an appointment. Unfortunately, those who arrive late for testing may need to reschedule.
