Before registering for courses at Oakland Community College (OCC), students must take placement exams.
- Accuplacer Reading Comprehension and Accuplacer WritePlacer (writing) placement exams are required before students may enroll in any OCC courses.
- Students who plan to enroll in math or math-based courses must take the ALEKS-PPL math placement exam.
- MTELP is required for students who are not native English speakers.
- Students may be eligible to test into a higher level Biology class through taking the Biology Placement exam.
More information about placement exams is available on the OCC Placement Testing website.
Before making arrangements for an off-site proctor, please check the Michigan Colleges Online (MCO) list of partners. Most MCO partners offer the MTELP exam (for non-native English speakers); some offer Accuplacer (Reading Comprehension and WritePlacer) and ALEKS-PPL.
