For Guidance Counselors

While helping  students navigate the Admissions process at YCCC here are some helpful things to know:

  • YCCC uses the Next Gen Accuplacer scores to gauge College Readiness. If a student has already taken the Next-gen Accuplacer then those scores can be submitted to the Admissions Office with the application.  If the student has not yet been tested please have the student schedule an appointment with the YCCC Admissions office to do so.
