All courses at ACC require students to read materials and write at the college level. The ACCUPLACER placement test, given when a student enrolls, helps to determine the level at which the student is currently reading and writing and matches the student to the appropriate curriculum for learning. (The ACCUPLACER test may be reinforced by a secondary assessment given in the College Composition and Reading course.) Students succeed more consistently in all their courses when they develop college-level reading and writing skills. Therefore, following the advice of the ACCUPLACER recommendation is strongly suggested.
