How QCC Southbridge can help...
 

Advising and Career Planning:

  • Can help you decide which QCC program of study is best for you

  • Interpret your placement scores
  • Assist with registration for courses
  • Provide information on important resources

Testing

All new students are required to take the Accuplacer Placement Test before registering for English, math and courses requiring a prerequisite of English or math. Most of the test is not timed and the majority of the questions are multiple-choice. It is very important to study before you take the test. 

Transfer Services

If your goal is to transfer to another college or university for a Bachelor's degree, it's never too early to learn about what is involved and how to prepare. Basic information on transfer planning, including steps to getting started and the transfer application process, will be provided. Get started by checking out the transfer office website: www.qcc.edu/transfer. For more information, contact Dan de la Torre at 508.854.4404 or by email at: ddelatorre [at] qcc.mass.edu.
