Placement Tests

A placement test helps you determine the right courses to start with in Reading, English and Math.

Our Center administers a computerized placement test called Accuplacer (CPT) for prospective and current students. The test is actually an assessment tool in basic skills to determine the best course placement for you.  The tests are proctored, and after you have completed them, you will have an opportunity to review the results with an Advisor and enroll in classes. For detailed information about the tests and to sample a test, go to: You can use the FREE web-based study app and should choose “Classic Practice Tests” for the exams to practice.
