Jefferson State Community College requires a comprehensive assessment of students in math, English, and ESL classes prior to enrollment in classes unless appropriate exemptions are on file with Enrollment Services. Course placement is determined by the results of this assessment. Students enrolled in courses for which they are ineligible will be administratively withdrawn. There is no fee for initial math and English placement tests. Students may retake the ACCUPLACER exam once per academic year.
Students may arrive any time between the hours listed. Students must present photo identification and have an application for enrollment on file with Enrollment Services at the time of testing. It is highly recommended that a student take the placement test at least 5 business days prior to any program deadline that one may need to meet.

Exemptions from placement tests are granted for students that register for RDG 085 and ENG 093 or for MTH 090. Course placement may also be assigned based on English and math subtest scores as reported by ACT and SAT Assessments, if the student is enrolling within the three years of graduation from high school. Placement may also be assigned based on college level math and English courses completed at other institutions. Students enrolled in courses for which they are ineligible will be administratively withdrawn.
These scores are subject to change without advance notice.
