About the Accuplacer Test
NVCC uses the Accuplacer computerized, adaptive placement test to assess your basic skills in English and mathematics. The test results are used by advisors to make decisions about the level of courses you are prepared to take.
Prior to signing up for the test, you must:
- Complete and submit an application for admission to the Admissions Office.
- Meet with an Academic Advisor or Admissions Counselor and receive an official Placement Test Referral.
- Get your Student/Banner/Net ID from the Admissions Office - this is your student ID number and it is required to take the test.
- Returning or transfer students: check with your advisor about whether or not to take one or more parts of the placement test.
Photo ID is required for all students testing at NVCC.
