River Valley Community College is a certified testing center for Accuplacer®, TEAS (nursing placement), as well as many other professional and licensing exams.
Most students who wish to register for credit bearing courses at the college will be required to take the Accuplacer® . Accuplacer® is a suite of tests that determines your knowledge in reading and writing as you prepare to enroll in college-level courses. Accuplacer® is used to identify your strengths and weaknesses in each subject area. The results of the assessment, in conjunction with your academic background, goals and interests, are used by academic advisors and counselors to place you in the appropriate college courses that meet your skill level.
Please note: In some cases, students who have taken college level courses at other accredited higher educational institutions may have their college transcripts evaluated and that course work may exempt students from taking sections of the Accuplacer® assessment. Please see an Academic Advisor or academic Program Director at the college if you believe you may not need this testing to register for classes.
Mathematics Course Placement – Upon admission to RVCC, all students should meet with their academic advisors to begin the mathematics course placement process. Placements are based upon multiple measures, including SAT scores and other test scores (if available), high-school transcripts, work experiences, previous college-level work, and academic focus areas. Advisors follow the Academic Advising Guide for Mathematics Courses and may subsequently refer students to a mathematics advisor for final course placements if mathematics waivers are requested.
