Academic Placement & Testing Center
When you become a NECC student, you are required to place into your courses prior to registering. The Academic Placement & Testing Center uses a placement test, ACCUPLACER, which will help to accurately place you in the appropriate English, writing, and math classes to ensure your success. However, you may be exempt from taking the placement exam.
