DMACC uses the
ACCUPLACER assessment to provide students with information regarding their academic skills in reading and writing, for use in course selection and schedule planning.
ACCUPLACER is required for specific career education and health career programs. It is not required for Liberal Arts and many other programs, although if you plan to take a Composition class, you will need it for course placement. You can refer to your MYDMACC/WebInfo tab to see if ACCUPLACER Reading/Writing appears on your checklist as a program requirement.
NOTE: Your ACT scores may satisfy the assessment requirement and eliminate the need for testing. Check with your advisor if you have questions.
To get your
ACCUPLACER assessment completed without delay, we recommend taking the assessment at a DMACC testing center near you. Click on the Testing Center links on the right or below to view testing center hours and scheduling options. A
Remote Testing option remains available for long distance students and students who require a more flexible testing arrangement. NOTE: You may also take the ACCUPLACER assessment at a non-DMACC accredited college or institution, if available (More Information).
Students who submit an application for admission indicating that English is not their native language may need to take the English Language Learner (ELL) ACCUPLACER. This Standard English assessment assesses appropriate levels of English proficiency, recommending courses to start your college career.
