Assessment of the Applicant’s Academic Skills
In order for the College to determine an applicant’s level of academic skill, applicants for admission must submit one of the following:
- Official Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT I) scores meeting College requirements. Applicants are strongly encouraged to take the SATs, especially if their educational goals may include transferring to a four-year institution after Central Maine Community College.
- Prior success (grade C or better) in a college-level English or Math course at the 100 level or above, taken at an accredited institution.
- Central Maine Community College ACCUPLACER Placement Assessment in reading, writing, math, and algebra, or English as a Second Language (ESL). The College offers multiple free ACCUPLACER assessment sessions. Please call the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid to schedule an assessment session.
Applicants who do not have SAT scores of 480 or higher or have not completed college-level coursework in English or Math with a grade of C or better at an accredited institution will be required to complete the computerized ACCUPLACER Placement Assessment. The ACCUPLACER uses a series of standardized examination questions to assess the applicant’s basic academic skills and to assist with academic advising and placement in appropriate courses or services.
Based on the results of the ACCUPLACER assessment, one of the following will happen:
- The applicant will receive admission into their program choice;
- The applicant will receive admission into their program choice and may be required to complete preparatory coursework in math and / or English;
- The applicant will be deferred from enrolling until additional preparatory coursework is successfully completed at a local adult education center. The ACCUPLACER may be re-taken after the preparatory coursework has been completed and verified.
