Individuals planning on attending Modesto Junior College must submit an admission application at www.mjc.edu. Students must wait until the application is processed before testing. Test at least ten days prior to registering for classes. All students need to visit a counselor after assessing. Assessment is free; however, other testing services offered by the Testing Center may require a fee.
NOTE: Most math and English Composition courses require assessment or prerequisite course completion. Being exempt from testing does not release the student from any prerequisite requirements a course may require.
What Tests are Offered:
The Accuplacer test is given for English, Reading, Math and credit ESL assessment. It is an untimed online test that gives you an immediate English or ESL, reading and math placement. The CASAS test is given for non-credit ESL classes. It is a paper/pencil exam and results may take up to 72 hours to be processed.
What you need to know before testing:
Accommodations can be arranged for students with disabilities for any college service if the request is made at least 10 days prior to the service. Call (209) 575-6225 or TTY 575-6863.
