Academic Advising - Course Placement Resources

This page is designed to provide SCC advising faculty and staff with the tools needed to ensure students are placed into appropriate courses based on their method of placement. Please use the following resources when determining course placement.

 Use the ACCUPLACER NC-DAP Placement Guide to determine course placement if the student has taken the NC-DAP within the last five years.
If the student has taken another version of ACCUPLACER within the last three years, use the Course Placement-Other ACCUPLACER Test Guide to determine course placement.

Use the Miscellaneous Placement Test Guide to determine academic placement if the student has submitted other forms of testing.

Review the North Carolina Multiple Measures policy to determine if a student qualifies for placement testing waivers based on high school GPA and math courses completed. You may also find the Multiple Measures Guide for Advisors document useful with regards to Multiple Measures. 
Use the College-Level Math Prerequisite Guide for assistance with college-level math course placement.
Review the SCC Retest Policy to determine when or if a student is eligible to retest.
