Academic Placement & Testing Center Update

The Academic Placement & Testing Center remote student service hours are Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

Due to COVID-19 and in an effort to keep everyone safe, and with limited college resources, we encourage students to test remotely. The Academic Placement & Testing Center will continue to offer remote testing and is offering in-person services at the Haverhill Campus, on a limited basis.

  • Academic Assessment (ACCUPLACER) is being offered remotely and in-person, on a limited basis, at the Haverhill Campus, by appointment only.  Prior to testing, check our list of waiver options to determine if you may be waived from testing on the Academic Assessment web page. If you need to test, go to the Accuplacer Test Dates page to request an appointment.
  • ATI TEAS and Fundamentals testing will be offered remotely until further notice, for NECC students.  Go to the Health Profession Testing page for registration information.
  • HiSET and GED testing is being offered remotely until further notice.  Go to the HSE Testing  Registration Information page for more information.
