Who Must Test

As a prospective or new student, you will need to take the ACCUPLACER placement test after you complete the application process. The placement test will provide information about your skills in the English language and mathematics. The test results will not affect your admission to the college, but they will determine your eligibility for certain courses and programs.

The following students are advised to take the placement test:
  • full or part-time students who have not achieved an SAT score of 540 in Reading or 530 in Mathematics sections
  • returning students who have not tested for course placement in more than two years
  • non-matriculated students with twelve or more credits
  • transfer students who have not completed English and mathematics requirements
  • ESL students who need mathematics courses (partial testing in math only)

Students should take the test prior to registration. If you have taken the test at another college, please arrange for an official copy of your scores to be sent to:

Academic Testing Center - LB209
Mercer County Community College
P.O. Box 17202
Trenton, NJ 08690
