Placement/Assessment Testing

Choose In-Person or Remote Placement Testing with Next Gen Accuplacer Tests for:

    • MATH
    • ESL Testing (For students whom English is the second language)

To test you will need to:

    • Complete the KCC Admission Application
    • Provide a current picture ID: (Student ID or government issued ID, Driver’s License, State ID, or Passport)
