Placement Tests

To help us place you in the right level of course work, we ask you to take a placement test in reading, English and mathematics.

UC Rockland administers a computerized placement test called Accuplacer (CPT) for prospective and current students. For detailed information about the tests and to sample a test, go to the Accuplacer web site.

Accuplacer exams are given at University College at Rockland on the following schedule:
