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
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.
