NCC uses the Accuplacer to determine your skills in sentence skills, writing (essay) and arithmetic, elementary algebra, and college-level math.

The ACCUPLACER is an untimed test with multiple sections taken in a 3-hour proctored session. Both English and Math sections of the test can usually be completed in that time. Incomplete tests – except for the essay portion — can be saved and resumed at another date. You may re-take any section of the ACCUPLACER (up to 3 times) for a $20 re-test fee.

Schedule & submit test at minimum 48 hours (2 business days) prior to the requested test date & time.

TCS should mainly be used for students with Reasonable Accommodation Plans (RAP).
