CCA uses the Accuplacer to place students into appropriate classes. Accuplacer tests are available during testing center business hours on a walk-in basis only. No appointments are necessary. The Accuplacer test measures your knowledge in the areas of English, Reading, and Math. You may be required to take a test based on your previous high school and or college background.
It is important to do your best when taking the test. A student can only take any part of the test twice in a three year period. A student is not allowed to take any section of the test more than once the same day. If you do not receive the scores you desire, we strongly encourage you to take any of the following options to study/improve your score. If you did not score into a college-level or developmental course, you will be required to wait three days (between tests), or take a workshop before you can retest.

The Accuplacer is a placement test. It is important that you do your best on the test to ensure proper placement. You will only benefit from this: you will complete your degree faster!
