Testing Center - Placement Test

Students need to schedule an appointment for placement testing.

Students applying for degree, diploma, and certificate programs may be required to complete certain placement tests. Test results are used by academic advisors to place students in appropriate courses and thereby maximize their opportunities for success. While placement test scores are not used for determining admission to the college, they may be required to satisfy certain program of study requirements.

CVCC utilizes the NCDAP test (NC Diagnostic and Placement) an ACCUPLACER test to assess Reading, English and Math skills.

Please review the "CVCC Placement Testing for NCDAP/ACCUPLACER" handout given to the student during the admissions process for more details regarding the placement tests.
