About Testing

TCC is now implementing the ACCUPLACER™ Next Generation Reading placement to evaluate students for English Placement and the ACCUPLACER™ Next Generation Math series for math placement. Your $18 fee allows you one retest. You must wait forty-eight hours between testing. This is to give you time to refresh your mind and study for the retest. Statistically, this is most favorable for success.
