All students who do not have prior college level English and Math must submit scores from a placement assessment test for the purpose of placing a student in classes. A student who has completed the Application for Admission process may take the Accuplacer test on campus at New River. There is no charge for the Accuplacer test and a student should allow up to 3 hours for testing.
