Placement Testing - Accuplacer

Because of the current COVID-19 situation, we are currently testing remotely using Zoom. All proctoring services are by appointment and available for currently enrolled and prospective students only at this time. All communications are done through testing@genesee.edu. We ask all the testers to do the best they can to keep their appointment. If they must cancel it, they need to give us 24-hours notice.

Placement test scores are required for all of our new incoming and transfer students for placement into Reading, English and Math classes. Students who have ACT, SAT or High School Regents scores on file in the Admissions office may be exempt from taking the College’s placement test. The ACCUPLACER placement test is free to students who administered by GCC staff.

The ACCUPLACER placement test is an untimed computerized test which will help you and your academic advisor select classes and plan an appropriate course of study. The tests are not used to determine admission to the college. Please see Admissions to receive your 800 number.

  • Allow approximately 2 hours for completion of a placement test
  • There is no charge for the test
