About Testing

TCC is now implementing the ACCUPLACER™ Next Generation Reading placement to evaluate students for English Placement and the ACCUPLACER™ Next Generation Math series for math placement. Your $18 fee allows you one retest. You must wait forty-eight hours between testing. This is to give you time to refresh your mind and study for the retest. Statistically, this is most favorable for success.

 

Testing locations and scheduling

Testing is available on both the main TCC Tacoma Campus and the Gig Harbor Campus. Picture ID and proof of payment are required. You must be already admitted to Tacoma Community College and have a Student ID number to take the test.
