"Focus on your dream and never quit. It is always too soon to quit. If you quit, you can’t succeed. By achieving your dream you will be an inspiration to others. You will set the example and make an enormous impact on the world. Make it happen!"
- Dan “Rudy” Ruettiger
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.
Students may be exempt from some or all portions of the placement test based on the college's exemption policy, which is available in the menu on the right side of the page. For questions regarding the exemption policy please email email@example.com
