Placement Tests

Haywood Community College conducts Accuplacer college placement testing through Student Services. The test consists of three sections and assesses a student’s achievement level in reading comprehension, sentence skills, and math. The Accuplacer test is not a timed test, and it is administered on a computer.

There is no fee for testing, and the Student Services provides testing on a regular schedule.
