Testing and Placement Services

Academic Readiness for College

After you apply to Montgomery County Community College (MCCC), the next step, before you register for classes, is to determine what level classes you need to take as you begin your education here. To do this, we undertake a careful evaluation of your prior educational experience, and if applicable, look at your performance on standardized tests; below is a list of tests and transcripts that can be used for evaluation. In the absence of information from these sources to inform a decision about your readiness, we administer placement tests. These tests will evaluate your reading, writing, and math skills.

*SAT and/or ACT Scores
*AP Test Scores
*College Transcripts
*High School Transcripts
*CLEP Exams

You are strongly encouraged to submit as early as possible any of the test scores or transcripts listed above that will help with your placement. Here is a link to let you know how to submit your documents. Before taking any placement tests, be sure to review the list at this link to see if you do, or do not, need to take placement tests; look at the bottom of the page for the test exemptions.
