Do I have to retake the placement tests?

Possibly. Most students are required to complete reading, writing, and mathematics assessments before registering for their first credit course. This assessment helps to place students in appropriate courses.

If you’ve already done placement testing at GCC or elsewhere you may not have to do it again if:

  • you have completed the assessment process at GCC or other college that uses Accuplacer tests within the past five years;
  • you have successfully completed an appropriate course in English composition and/or mathematics at another college (a math course must have been within the last five years);
  • you are taking courses with no pre-requisites.

Check with the Testing Center to find out whether your previous testing scores are still valid, or whether you need to re-test.
