Student Success Center - Testing
The Student Success Center (SSC) offers a quiet, private, proctored testing room where students can take a variety of tests. Students need to arrive at the center on time for their scheduled tests, and are required to bring their driver’s license or a photo ID for check in.
Accuplacer Testing: The testing center administers the Accuplacer Placement exam that measures entry-level skills in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. ACCUPLACER uses the latest computer-adaptive technology and the questions you see are based on your skill level. Your response to each question drives the difficulty level of the next question so it’s important to give each question as much thought as you can before selecting your answer. No one passes or fails ACCUPLACER tests, but it’s important to complete the test using your best effort, so you and your college have an accurate measure of your academic skills. Any placement score (ACT, SAT, or COMPASS, etc.) older than five years is not valid for placement; students with scores older than five years must take current Accuplacer exam for initial course placement.
