Courses at Mott Community College have minimum skill level requirements in reading, writing, and mathematics. These skill levels must be met before a student will be permitted to enroll in those courses. One way students meet these skill prerequisites is by achieving the required scores on placement tests.
Mott Community College, uses computerized placement test results along with other information to recommend the most appropriate beginning course levels for you as a new student. The placement assessment software used is ACCUPLACER.
You will be required to take Reading, Math, and English computerized placement tests.
This is not a college entrance examination. It consists of computerized tests, 20 questions each in the areas of Reading/ Math, and a Writing Essay.
