Assessment & Testing Schedules

The testing center on-campus locations are currently closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Remote proctoring is an option for students who would like to test as soon as is possible. To be able to engage in remote proctoring, a student will need a computer or laptop that has a camera. Phones are not recommended. A student will need to provide a full name, date of birth, email, phone number and whether they have taken the test before. To make an appointment, please email testing@berkshirecc.edu

Accuplacer®

College Level Reading and Writing:

A 2.7 cumulative High School GPA will place the student in college level reading and writing, and that student will not need the Accuplacer for Reading and Writing.

Any GPA below 2.7 will still need the Accuplacer for Reading and Writing.

Students are strongly encouraged to make an appointment for the earliest session that they can attend. Practicing before you come to take the Accuplacer is a good idea.
