Testing Centers

CLOSED indefinitely for in-person testing.
Re-opening information will be posted when available.

The MCCC Academic Testing Centers are unable to provide in-person services as the college responds to the many challenges presented by the pandemic. As the situation evolves, updates on the availability of our services will be posted. We are anxious to return when we can safely do so.


Mission Statement

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.


 MCCC Placement Test    A remote college skills placement test is available!

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, take the Remote ESL Placement Test. It will ask for information to identify you and then give you a prompt for you to respond to in writing.

After completing one of the assessments, your next step is to contact an Enrollment Services advisor (e-mail admissions@mccc.edu) or visit the Virtual OneStop Center.  

Placement test results do not affect admission to the college; however, scores will determine eligibility for certain courses and programs.
