All newly-admitted students must take the Accuplacer to determine placement in courses. More information is below, as well as the other tests we offer during your time at MCC.
Computerized Placement Test designed to provide placement information for students entering higher education. All students entering a college-level English or Math class will be required to take an exam unless they have documentation of previous assessment scores or proof of an Associate Degree (AA or AS) or higher.
Before taking the assessment, or to learn about the placement scores required for a certain class, please meet with an advisor. To schedule an appointment with an advisor, please call your center director or Student Services at 970 542-3100. Students should talk to their advisor about options after testing if they did not get the score required for their courses. Placement tests are untimed.
