Miles Community College has a mandatory placement policy—students may only enroll into the courses that align with their placement. MCC uses multiple measures to determine the most appropriate placement for each student including high school GPA, previous college course work, ACCUPLACER scores, and/or ACT/SAT scores. Students must take a writing and a math course in their first year of enrollment (first term preferred).
Students may contact the Learning Center if they wish to challenge the following placements.
If you are taking the Accuplacer for an institution other than MCC, the cost for the full ACCUPLACER battery (reading, writing, and mathematics) is $15. Individual subject tests cost $10. Testing fees may not be deferred and must be paid before students test.
Though ACCUPLACER is untimed, please plan at least one and a half to two hours to complete your ACCUPLACER testing. Please keep in mind the hours we are open when you call to schedule your ACCUPLACER testing appointment. To schedule, please call 406.874.6152.
Sample ACCUPLACER questions are available on the ACCUPLACER website
You may also download the free study app for the ACCUPLACER Reading, Writing, and Math tests at their website by providing an email address and creating a password.
There is a "Learn as You Go" mode with instant feedback on each question you answer of a "Sample Test" mode to give you an entire test before scoring your answers.
The MCC Learning Center is also an ACCUPLACER remote testing site. MCC students who cannot take the test at MCC should set up a remote test at an official ACCUPLACER testing center near them. These students will need to schedule their remote test through the MCC Learning Center, and Learning Center staff can help students determine the remote testing center nearest them. Students will be responsible for paying the ACCUPLACER testing fee to Miles Community College prior to course registration. To schedule, please call 406.874.6152.
If unable to attend a remote testing site, students can pay an extra $40 fee to be tested virtually. Please contact the Learning Center at 406.874.6152 to set this up.
Students needing to take an ACCUPLACER test for another institution should register through that institution, then schedule a testing time at MCC. A $5 remote testing fee is charged in addition to whatever ACCUPLACER fees are required by the home institution.
