PLACEMENT TESTING INFORMATION

Students entering college credit programs may be required to take a state-mandated post-secondary education readiness test. The College accepts scores on ACT, SAT, CPT, or PERT placement tests that are no more than two years old. Transfer students will have their transcripts evaluated to determine whether they will be required to take a placement test. Students enrolling in Career and Technical Certificate programs may be required to undergo a skill assessment process utilizing the TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education). Exemptions from testing may exist and should be discussed with an advisor.  For more information visit NFC Testing & Assessment.
