During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Test Center is offering multiple options for placement testing for writing, reading, and math. Please read this information carefully.
The college offers Accuplacer tests online (through Microsoft Teams) and onsite (at the Test Center).
HCC is also offering alternative placement testing opportunities in English and Math via Blackboard that are ready when you are! Blackboard placement tests are available 24/7, no appointment required. Get your scores within 2-3 business days and get signed up for classes.
You will need a laptop or desktop computer with internet. You will also need access to Blackboard with your HCC OwlMail portal login (username and password). Webcams and MS Teams are not needed for Blackboard placement testing.
To access these tests, follow the steps in How to Access HCC's Placement Testing in Blackboard.
After testing, contact Admissions (email@example.com) to register for classes.
Blackboard placement tests can only be taken ONCE. If you do not get preferred scores in these assessments, then you can take Accuplacer tests.
The Nursing program is a screened major and requires additional prerequisites and a separate application.
