For a Placement Test Reservation

An Application for Admission must be submitted to the Admissions Office one week prior to placement testing. For more information regarding admission, call the Admissions Office at 860.773.1490. Once an application to the college has been submitted, applicants should contact the Academic Success Center at 860.773.1530 to schedule their ACCUPLACER Placement Assessment (seating is limited). This assessment, or proof of exemption, is required of all incoming students. Testing takes place in the Academic Success Center, Room 6-109. Most students complete the test in approximately 2 hours.

Exemption from Placement Testing

In lieu of placement testing, students may submit recent SAT or ACT scores for course placement. For minimum scores, refer to the current Tunxis SAT/ACT Policy. In addition, exemptions exist for students who have successfully completed college-level English and/or math. Senior citizens and students who have completed Accuplacer at another college within the last 2 years may also be exempt.
Students who are exempt from the math placement test have the option of submitting their SAT/ACT scores and also taking ACCUPLACER.  Tunxis will honor the higher math course placement.

To apply for exemption, submit the Application for Exemption from Placement Testing form.
