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 Students enrolled in courses for which they are ineligible will be administratively withdrawn.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.
