Assessment & Testing Schedules

Accuplacer®

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 E-10 on the lower level of Jonathan Edwards Library.

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.
