In addition to on-campus in-person services, most are also available remotely.
The WEST WINDSOR CAMPUS Testing Center is open by appointment ONLY starting September 7, 2021. The JAMES KERNEY CAMPUS Learning Center is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Testing services will be limited. MCCC students should discuss testing procedures with their professors.
The MCCC Testing Centers plan to provide more in-person services later in the semester. Check here for updates on availability.
The mission of the MCCC Academic Testing Centers is to administer exams in an appropriate testing environment that ensures academic integrity in accordance with the guidelines of the National College Testing Association Standards. The centers provide students, faculty, staff, and the community with examination services. These include test administration and grading for courses taught on campus and online, course placement, "credit by examination" programs (CLEP, DSST DANTES, and NYU Foreign Language Proficiency), high school equivalency (TASC and HiSET), vocation certification (PSI, FAA, etc.), and distance learning programs nationwide.
Before doing any placement assessment, please complete a Mercer County Community College admissions application.
There is only one attempt permitted for these Remote Placement Assessments.
for NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS:
If you have spoken English for your whole life, complete the Guided Self Placement & Collaborative Assessment (GSPCA). It will ask for information to identify you and then a series of questions reflecting on two short readings and your previous educational experiences.
for ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE SPEAKERS:
If you learned English as a second language, please contact the Testing Center to schedule an in-person test that will measure your English proficiency and assign you the appropriate course level. You must make an appointment to visit the Testing Center. To schedule your test appointment and for questions about ESL placement testing, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call (609) 570-3295.
Placement test results do not affect admission to the college; however, scores will determine eligibility for certain courses and programs.
Unfortunately, while the Testing Centers are closed, we are not able to administer these exams.
When open for in-person testing, Mercer County Community College is the administration site for two of the three companies whose tests are accepted by the State of New Jersey for earning a High School Diploma: High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) and Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC).
