Computer Placement Test
The placement test assesses a student's skill level in English (Writing), English (Reading), Mathematics (Computation), Mathematics (Algebra), and Computer Skills (CSP); determining which of the required courses students will take during their first semester at New Jersey City University. This test (ACCUPLACER) was designed by the College Entrance Examination Board to assess student skill level, provide placement, and advisement for students entering two or four-year institutions of higher education. The ACCUPLACER test is presented in a computer-adaptive mode, and test scores are available soon after testing.

Skill Deficiency
Students needing remediation in any of the five skills assessed (writing, reading, computation, algebra, and computer skills) are placed into Academic Foundations courses. Students demonstrating the need to receive remediation in these particular areas are strongly encouraged to fulfill such requirements during their first semester at NJCU. Your advisor will meet with you to discuss which Academic Foundations courses, if any, you will be required to take.
