Testing is an important tool to measure your skill level in a variety of subjects so we can help you make better, more informed educational choices that will help you realize your educational goals in a timely manner.
All testing must be done at your home college and all testing is by appointment only.
If you are a first-time Norco College student, you will need to take Accuplacer Online, an assessment test to determine what level of English and math courses you need to take. You must wait at least one to two working days after submitting your online admissions application before you can make an appointment for Accuplacer Online.
Please use your RCCD Student ID number to make your online appointment. You will receive your RCCD Student ID number in your "Welcome to Norco College" letter from Admissions and Records.
If you have a documented disability and require testing accommodations beyond extended time, please contact the Disability Resource Center at (951) 372-7070 before making your assessment appointment.
The Accuplacer Online test takes about 1½ hours to complete both English and math segments. New students will have to take the full test of English and math. Some continuing and transfer students may have to take only the English part or math part. See Who Needs to Be Tested.
The Assessment Center conducts other types of testing as well. See Which Tests Do I Need.
NOTE: If you are a non-native speaker of English, please click here to find out about English as a Second Language (ESL).
