Basic Skills Assessment
To assist students with appropriate and effective course placement, Cumberland County College provides basic skill assessment for all students. Proper course placement, selection and advisement are important factors for successful course completion. Degree seeking students must take the Accuplacer as part of their initial enrollment at the college. This test is administered through the Success Center and offered both on and off campus. The Accuplacer provides assessment of basic skills for the areas of reading, writing, math computation and elementary algebra. Introductory college-level courses require that students test out of reading and/or comple te the recommended course(s) based on the Accuplacer.

Non-degree students who have completed 12 credits should take the Accuplacer. These test results are used for basic skills assessment and course placement. While the Accuplacer is not used to determine admission to the college, program and course entrance and selection may be restricted, based on the student's test results.

Students may be exempt from taking the Accuplacer if they:

1. Are transferring from another college and have successfully completed equivalent college-level courses, including English and mathematics. 2. Have taken the placement test at another New Jersey college and have submitted the results. 3. Have earned an associate's or bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university. 4. Have taken the SAT with specific scores. 5. Are taking the ACT ESL Placement Test.



Information and/or requests for exemption from the Accuplacer should be directed to the Enrollment Services Office.

Enrollment Consultation

This interview will review the student's educational goals and requirements for compatibility with the student's demonstrated academic skills. A recommendation for enrollment or alternative educational options will be provided.

Students should obtain advisement from their assigned adviser throughout their enrollment to ensure that all program requirements are complete in the most appropriate sequences.

Advisers are assigned to students according to the students' program of study.
