This guide will assist users in preparation of entrance exams required by colleges.


This guide should be used by students wishing to attend Central Community College. The following acts as a tool to help guide students in the pre-enrollment requirements.


Pre-Enrollment Assessment Requirements

Who is required to take a pre-enrollment assessment?

All certificate, diploma, and degree-seeking students, and those enrolling in math, reading, writing, or English Language Learner (ELL) courses are required to take a pre-enrollment assessment, unless exempt based upon one of the following:

  • A student who transfers to Central Community College from an accredited institution of higher education and who has earned a "C" or better in college-level English and math.

New students at Central Community College should complete a pre-enrollment assessment prior to meeting with a program adviser.

Please note that CCC Health Science programs require that ALL students complete a pre-enrollment assessment of ACCUPLACER or ACT. 

Registration in math and English courses requires assessment testing if the math and English prerequisites have not been met. 

If you would like to schedule an exam at any of the CCC locations, please call:
