ACCUPLACER® Tests

Although Cape Cod Community College has an open admissions policy, appropriate skill levels in English, reading and mathematics are needed for success in any program of study and are prerequisites to enrollment in many introductory courses at this College. Therefore, the College administers skills assessments in these areas.
