ACCUPLACER Test for Prospective Applicants to the Registered Nursing Program
Schedule for ACCUPLACER Tests
Go to the ACCUPLACER Test Schedule for Prospective Applicants to the RN, PTA, and RT Programs on the Division of Health Sciences and Environmental Studies website.
See the Reading and Math Eligibility Requirements before taking the ACCUPLACER Test.
All students must have an Ohlone College Student ID Number before taking the ACCUPLACER Test. The only way to obtain an Ohlone Student ID Number is to apply to Ohlone College. Applying to Ohlone College and obtaining a Student ID Number does not obligate a student to enroll in a course here; however, this is the only way to obtain an Ohlone Student ID Number.
Reading ACCUPLACER Test
The ACCUPLACER Reading Assessment Test evaluates English Reading competency. Passing the English/Reading ACCUPLACER Test "clears" the Reading eligibility requirement (ENGL-163 or ENGL-167) for admission. Note, however, that passing the English ACCUPLACER Test does not clear the ENGL-101A or equivalent eligibility requirement.
Math ACCUPLACER Test
Passing the ACCUPLACER Math Assessment Test "clears" the Math eligibility requirement (MATH-153 or MATH-155 or equivalent) for admission. If students have completed a college course in Intermediate Algebra or higher with a grade of "C" or higher, they do not need to take the Math ACCUPLACER Test.
Sample questions and study guides are available.
