Providing the Right Fit of Classes for You

When you become an NECC student, you will take the Academic Placement Assessment, or ACCUPLACER, which will help to accurately place you in the appropriate English, writing, and math classes to ensure your success.

This is not a pass/fail test, but you want to do your best as you will be placed in courses according to your results. No appointment is necessary to take the ACCUPLACER (unless you need learning accommodations) and you will want to allow three hours to complete the entire assessment.

Check out our walk in ACCUPLACER Schedule on the Haverhill and Lawrence Campus.

You Need to Take the ACCUPLACER

  • If you enroll in a degree or certificate program
  • If you enroll in any math, developmental reading, or English Composition I course
  • Before you complete six credits

Students with Disabilities

Special accommodations during assessment can be provided for students with documented disabilities. You must make arrangements in advance by contacting the Learning Accommodations Center.
