Your placement test will depend on your TOEFL scores and program of study.

Complete the ACCUPLACER practice tests, review videos and study guides, to help improve your test scores, which will determine your placement in English, reading and math. For students who do not place into college-level classes, you may be required to take developmental classes that are not a part of your degree. Preparation for this test is important as it could improve your chances of success and placement into college-level courses.

ACCUPLACER tests are now mandatory, but you may qualify for a waiver if you have high ACT or SAT scores, transfer credits in college-level English or Math, or ASSET, COMPASS, or ACCUPLACER scores from another institution. Contact First Year Experience at 704.330.6100 or via email at fye@cpcc.edu if you need help or have questions regarding submitting official college transcripts and having them evaluated.
