FLCC uses placement tests to determine your basic proficiency level in reading, writing and math. Your test results are used to place you in the most appropriate courses for your skill level, educational path and goals.
Who Needs to Test
If you are a new student at FLCC, or choose to enroll in courses with prerequisites, you'll be required to complete placement testing. Students entering the Music or Music Recording Technology programs are required to take the music theory test.
Exemptions to Testing
Some students may be exempt from testing. If you successfully earned a college-level English or math credit, or you are eligible for a transcript review for math placement, you may be exempt from one or more parts of the test. Get more information on testing exemption criteria.
To complete your test remotely, there may be an additional proctoring fee, set by your testing location.
If you are interested in remote testing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and the Placement Testing Coordinator will be in touch with your testing options.
After a testing option is found, the Testing Coordinator will create a testing voucher, a code that will allow you to take FLCC's placement test at another location. You will receive an email from ACCUPLACER with your code and instructions for scheduling your test. Please note that this email may get sent to your junk mail.
About the Tests

You can take your tests at all FLCC campuses, or under certain circumstances, at off-site locations. Testing must be completed prior to registration.
The English placement tests measure your reading comprehension and sentence skills. Learn more about the English placement tests.
