A placement assessment evaluates a student’s math, reading, and English skills. The score a student receives from each assessment determines which level of Math and English classes is needed to be successful in college classes. Scores will not keep a student from becoming enrolled at Randolph Community College.
RCC uses the North Carolina Diagnostic Assessment and Placement (NC DAP) assessment to determine whether students have met developmental studies prerequisites for Arts & Sciences courses.
Placement assessment is given as part of RCC's admissions process. In place of the College's assessment, students have multiple options to fulfill this admissions requirement as listed in the "Who takes the placement assessment?" section of our Frequently Asked Questions page. Students are encouraged to contact a counselor for placement assessment interpretation.
