ACCUPLACER Placement Test

North Georgia Technical College uses ACCUPLACER placement tests to identify academic skills and needs.  These tests include sections on reading comprehension, writing skills, and basic math. Algebra is required for some programs. ACCUPLACER placement tests are taken on a computer; they are un-timed and testers can only use the calculator that is provided on the ACCUPLACER exam.

To request Disability Services for taking the placement test contact Kay Morgan, Special Populations and Retention Coordinator, at 706-754-7828 or kmorgan@northgatech.edu. Inquiries about receiving accommodations should be made well in advance of testing, as there is a request and documentation review process.

Remote Tests

ACCUPLACER enables NGTC to schedule Remote Tests for our students at other participating testing locations throughout Georgia and the U.S. Remote Tests benefit students who live an inconvenient distance from NGTC’s campus locations. NGTC will receive the scores as soon as you are done testing, eliminating the hassle of transferring scores for the student. Fees vary depending on testing location. Testing locations are typically colleges and universities.

If you are interested in a Remote Test at the NGTC site for enrollment in another college, a small proctoring fee is applied for any non-Technical College System of Georgia schools. The college the student is seeking enrollment in is responsible for setting up the Remote Test with NGTC. Currently, only the Clarkesville campus of NGTC proctors Remote Tests for students seeking enrollment in another college.

For questions about Remote Testing, please contact Terry Edwards at 706-754-7762 or tedwards@northgatech.edu
