Mohawk Valley Community Colleges uses two evaluative tools to help assess college readiness: a hand-written sample for determining compositional skills and a computer-web-adaptive-testing system from College Board called ACCUPLACER® that determines math and reading skill-level.

The results are made available during your advisement session with an academic advisor through the Academic Advising Center.  Test results are used as a guide to help advisors determine the appropriate level of courses individual students are required to take. Unfortunately, MVCC is unable to transfer placement test results to other colleges. If you have questions concerning English as a Second Language (ESL) placement testing, please contact us at 315-731-5802.
