What Classes do I Place into?
Placement test requirements have been waived for most programs. Students will be able to register for classes through self-placement, without the need for a placement exam. Students in EMS and Nursing programs, however, may still have to take a placement exam. For more information about all our placement options, please visit the Course Placement page.
But you don't have to do this alone: Let CCC advisors help you make informed and wise self-placement decisions. We strongly encourage students to meet with an academic advisor to discuss course options and determine proper placement into classes. For more information visit our Academic Advising page .
In addition to advising, you may also use the Math and English Self-Placement Grid . It explains how to use other placement measures (previous test scores, prior credit, etc.) to determine placement.
If none of these placement measures work for you, we are offering limited Accuplacer placement testing at our Lone Tree Testing Center.
What if my advisor recommends a placement test?
If you've already spoken with an advisor and determined that an Accuplacer placement test is right for you, we are offering in-person placement testing. Testing is held in Room 457 Lone Tree. For specific dates and sessions, please see the link below.
Students should speak with an academic advisor before registering for classes or placement testing.
Placement tests are also available at the Page Center . For more information or to sign up for a test, contact Patrice Nimrod, 928-645-6683.
