The ACCUPLACER Placement Assessment covers several basic skills areas that are important to your academic success.  Southeastern Community College may require tests in reading, English, writing, math, and basic computer knowledge. We recommend that students test on two separate days, scheduling one day for reading, writing, and English and the second day for math. Testing accommodations are available for students with a documented disability. Completion of the placement test study guides is encouraged prior to testing.The Accuplacer study guides are available below.
