College Placement Tests Offered By Appointment This Summer at Cape May County Campus

June 21, 2006

Atlantic Cape Community College’s Cape May County Campus will offer the college Placement Test on an appointment basis this summer. The test is required of all degree-seeking students and is used to determine preparedness for college-level work. The test consists of two parts: English and mathematics. Students whose test scores indicate a need for improved basic skills are placed in the appropriate developmental course.

Prospective students need to have applied and paid their application fee prior to taking the test. Placement tests are approximately three hours long. To schedule a test, call (609) 463-3775. All tests will be offered at CMCC, 341 Court House-South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House.

Students take the test using a computer, which in some cases provides immediate test results. Those taking the mathematics portion of the test can get their results immediately after taking the test. Depending on their score on the English portion of the test, students may be required to write an essay. Those results will become available approximately two weeks after taking the test.

Those who may be exempt from the test include those who have a college degree; have taken the test at another New Jersey college in the last four years and submitted an official copy of the test results; or transfer students who have completed a college-level math within the last 10 years and an English course at another college.

ACCC’s Cape May County Campus testing office is also a test proctoring site for other four-year schools, like Thomas Edison State College and many online bachelors and masters programs throughout the country. Students of those schools may call (609) 463-3775 to learn about taking their exams at CMCC.
