Multiple Measures of Placement into English and Mathematics At GCC we use multiple measures to determine which English and Math courses you should take. Many students take the Accuplacer tests, but there are other ways to determine placement. By submitting official documentation from the lists below to the Office of Admission, you may be able to enroll directly into college-level English and Math courses without completing placement tests or developmental-level pre-requisites first. Discuss your options with an advisor through the Advising Center before you make an appointment to take a placement test or register for classes. Please note: If you have taken the Accuplacer test elsewhere, please have the school where you took the test send us your test scores so we can determine if you need additional testing. (English classes/Accuplacer scores are good forever. Math Accuplacer scores are only valid for 5 years). Ways to determine ENGLISH placement: High School Transcript (showing overall GPA and grades in all classes within the last 10 years) GED ELA (English and Language Arts) Score HiSET (Reading and Writing Score) AP English Scores CLEP SAT Verbal Scores (pre-2016 test scores) College Transcripts (showing successful completion of English courses or other college-level courses) PLA (credit for prior learning) Accuplacer (Classic or Next Generation) Scores from GCC or another approved institution Ways to determine MATH Placement: High School Transcript (showing GPA and grades in all classes within the last 3 years) GED Mathematics Reasoning Score AP Math Scores CLEP College Transcripts (showing completion of Math Courses) PLA (credit for prior learning) Accuplacer (Classic or Next Generation) Scores from GCC or another approved institution We currently use the Next Generation version of Accuplacer tests and the essay-based writing test (WritePlacer).
