NCDAP/ACCUPLACER & OPAC Placement Tests

  

Testing CenterStudents 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.
Retest Policy
