ACCUPLACER™ Test Results From Other Schools
NIACC uses some sections of the ACCUPLACER™ test for College Placement (Reading Comprehension, Elementary Algebra, Arithmetic, and College Level Math).
If you have taken these sections of the ACCUPLACER™ at another institution within the past three years, you may submit your results to the NIACC Admissions Office, and you will not be required to repeat those sections (unless you wish to retest).
