Up one level
In this section
Students who are working toward a degree within the Colorado Community College system, or wanting to transfer guaranteed-transfer courses to a four-year college, or are under the age of 21 must complete the Accuplacer assessment or provide exemption documentation (see below). The results will help you and your advisor make appropriate choices.
If you have taken college coursework prior to starting classes at RRCC, please provide a transcript(s) from any previous college you have attended. This will help an advisor determine if you need to take the Accuplacer.
The Accuplacer placement test is given on a walk-in basis (no appointment necessary) and is not timed. You must have applied and received a student identification number prior to taking the test and arrive with a government-issued photo ID at least 2 hours before the Assessment Center closes.
We strongly recommend you review the online study guides available prior to taking the Accuplacer. The study guides can be found at www.rrcc.edu/assessment. You cannot "fail" the Accuplacer; your score is an indication of the level of coursework you are ready to take. You are responsible for enrolling in basic skills courses during your first 30 credit hours of attendance if your assessment scores are below college level.
Students enrolling in Fire Science or Emergency Services coursework must consult the Emergency Services Department for their assessment requirements.
