Placement Testing and Waivers
Placement testing determines your academic readiness to take college-level English or math courses — or your readiness to take other classes that require English or math proficiency.
If you are a student with a documented disability in need of accommodations during your placement test, please contact the Disability Services Office prior to scheduling. The Disability Services Office is located in Union Station – 218 or can be reached at 910-362-7800 .
Important Note: Placement testing does not determine your eligibility to attend CFCC.
Sign Up to Take the Placement Test
If you plan to take classes in the spring semester (January 2019), it is recommended that you take the placement test prior to Dec. 19.
Testing sessions are available every week the College is open. If you plan to take the English and math parts of the placement test, please allow 3-4 hours to complete your test. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes early.

Firefighter and EMT Applicant Placement Testing

Firefighters and applicants to EMT Basic will need to take the English part of the test. Applicants for EMT Advanced/Paramedic will need to take English and Math Pt. 1 of the test. When reserving your spot for testing, EMTs can put EMT in the required box that asks for your CFCC ID#. Firefighters can put Firefighter in this box. EMTs and Firefighters are not required to have CFCC ID#s to test.
