All students who wish to attend QCC must take the Accuplacer Placement Test before registering for classes. The test is an assessment tool that determines your appropriate placement for Math and English courses at QCC. To schedule a time to take the test, visit the Testing at QCC page.
Because the test is used for assessment, tutors in the Writings Center are not able to help you prepare for the English portion of the Accuplacer Placement Test.
