We strongly recommend that future Clayton State students prepare before testing, particularly in algebra. Minimum scores are required for admission. Here is the official ACCUPLACER preparation website: https:///students/prepare-for-accuplacer . Also see the section below on "Preparing."
Algebra workshops will be held by the Center for Academic Success (CAS) on Saturday, October 21, and on Saturday, November 4, for Clayton State students and applicants. Math tutoring may also be available from the CAS. Call the CAS at (678) 466-4070 or email them at thecas@ to make your appointments for study assistance!
Admitted students may take ACCUPLACER Elementary Algebra as an appeal to be placed into MATH 1101 or 1111 without remediation. Admitted students may also take ACCUPLACER College-Level Math as an appeal to start in a higher-level mathematics course than MATH 1101 or 1111.
No calculators are allowed except those provided on the ACCUPLACER screen. The fee is $20 for Clayton State University and POST testing and retesting; $30 for all remote testing.
ACCUPLACER testing appointments are required. Please schedule your exam by calling the Testing Center at (678) 466-4495.
What is the Accuplacer Placement Assessment? Why is it important?
Accuplacer is a computerized placement assessment in sentence structure, reading, and various levels of math that helps Counselors and Advisors place you in the proper courses as you begin your studies at Lorain County Community College. The assessment is designed to improve your chances of success here at LCCC. If you are placed in a course that is too easy for you, you may get bored and lose interest. On the other hand, if you are placed in a course that is too difficult, you may become overwhelmed and lose confidence in your abilities.
