Once students are accepted, the next step in the enrollment process at YCCC is to attend an Assessment and/or Registration appointment. You will be tested in Math and English prior to registering for classes. There are three possible waivers from having to take the Accuplacer Math and English placement test:

Accuplacer Waiver

  1. SAT SCORES
    1. Math scores 525+ (< 3 years old)
    2. Critical Reading scores 550+ (<5 years old )
  2. ACT SCORES
    1. Math score of 22+ (< 3 years old)
    2. English score of 22+ (<5 years old)
  3. COLLEGE CREDIT
    1. College English Course (C or better)
    2. College Math Course (C or better)**

**If the math is over three years old it will be transferred in, but the student will need to take Accuplacer if there are any math classes to complete their degree.

 

 

Maine's seven community colleges have adopted the following common cut scores for the College Board's Accuplacer placement tests.

Algebra 75
Reading 68
Sentence Skills 74
Write Placer 6

 

These scores indicate that a student is qualified for college level work at one of Maine's community colleges. However, some programs of study have additional requirements. For example, for some programs, a student must have completed certain high school courses or an applicant must complete additional testing. Students are encouraged to contact individual colleges in order to determine if a program that interests them has any additional requirements above and beyond the Accuplacer.
