Placement Testing

Placement Testing

All students applying for admission are required to take the NC-DAP placement test. Students are asked to meet 15 minutes prior to testing in the Hoffler building, Student Success Center.  Students are tested in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics. The test is designed to assist counselors in placing students into appropriate classes based upon skill level.

Testing Registration

James Sprunt now offers online registration for incoming students to sign up for testing. When you register for the placement test, you can select the date and time that works best with your schedule. You will need your Admissions letter information to be able to register.
