Testing at Cumberland



​​​​​​​​We want to make sure that you’re placed in the most appropriate and effective courses for your skill level.

*During the COVID pandemic, please refer to our Remote Testing page​.

T​o help with your course placement, you may be asked to take the ACCUPLACER as part of your enrollment. The ACCUPLACER assesses your basic skills in the areas of reading, writing, arithmetic, algebra and statistics. Introductory college-level courses require that you test out of reading and/or complete the recommended course(s) based on the ACCUPLACER.

ACCUPLACER is a computerized test.  We recommend that you take it as soon as possible so your placement information and course recommendations will be available for advisement.

Below you'll find a schedule of dates, times and locations for testing.  Each test begins at the starting time and takes approximately three (3) hours to complete.

You might be exempt from taking the Accuplacer if you:

  • Are transferring from another college and have successfully completed equivalent college-level courses, including English and mathematics or
  • Have taken the placement test at another New Jersey college and have submitted the results, or
  • Have earned an associate's or bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university with an official transcript or
  • Have taken the OLD SAT (before March 2016) with a Reading score of 540 and a Math score of 530... OR the NEW SAT with an Evidence-Based Reading & Writing (EBRW) score of 450 and a Math score of 500.
