Accuplacer English Placement
Preparing for Accuplacer
New students whose native language is English must take the Accuplacer English Placement Assessment unless they meet one of the exemptions. (see exemptions below) The assessment includes a reading section and an essay-writing section.
Your scores on each section are used to determine your placement into English courses and your eligibility to take other courses at OCC. Many courses have prerequisites that require a placement into ENG 1510 (Composition I). Placing into the right course can save you time and money.
