Nashua Community College utilizes the College Board Accuplacer Assessment Test to determine an individual’s particular skills in the areas of reading comprehension, language usage, writing, arithmetic, elementary algebra, and college level math. The results of the test are required for both Acceptance and college course placement for all of the Associate Degrees and some of the Certificate Programs.
This is a 3-hour proctored test that takes place on the NCC campus (incomplete tests at the end of the 3-hour session can be saved and resumed on a later date). It is strongly suggested that you utilize the study materials available prior to the test date:

There is a $20 fee to take the Accuplacer; payments are made through the Business Office, either by phone or in person – they accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
Note: the Business Office closes at 5 p.m., if the test session meets after 5 p.m., payment will need to be made prior to arrival. Proof of payment or a waiver is required for admittance to the exam.
* You can re-take any portion of the Accuplacer (up to 3 times per section). There is $20 re-test fee required.
