Placement Testing - Accuplacer

Placement test scores may be required for new incoming and transfer students for placement into Reading, English and Math courses. Students who have ACT, SAT or High School Regents scores on file in the Admission's office may be exempt from taking the College’s placement test. The Accuplacer placement test is free to students who complete their testing at a GCC campus.

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.
