Dates marked with an asterisk (*) are scheduled for the South County Center in Great Barrington; those sessions marked with two asterisks (**) will be held at McCann Tech in North Adams. All other sessions will be held on BCC's Main Campus in the Testing Center, Room K-213.
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.
A free study app is available here: https://accuplacerpractice.collegeboard.org/login
After registering, check to verify that you see the words Next Generation Practice tests at the top of the screen. If not, click on the change version arrow. Reviewing the Reading Comprehension and the math subtests will be useful before you make your appointment to test. Although the Study App does not preview the WritePlacer portion of the test, you will be required to write an essay as part of the assessment.
