Mathematics Placement

When and Where can I take the mathematics placement test on campus?

Accuplacer tests are administered on a walk-in basis, Mon–Fri between 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM, in the Academic Center for Enhancement (ACE), and also at prescheduled orientation sessions. There is no charge for the Accuplacer test.

What is the Placement Test?

The Redlands Community College Department of Mathematics wants students to succeed and understands that students do best when they have a suitable background for each course. The purpose of the math placement test is to determine the appropriate first math course for each undergraduate student. The Mathematics Department enforces prerequisites for mathematics courses; before enrolling in one of these courses, you may need to pass a placement test.

For more information on Accuplacer, please see this link, or click on 'Accuplacer Assessment Tests' on the left under the Admission & Aid category.

The Department of Mathematics at Redlands also covers Developmental Math for students who either place into developmental mathematics courses or those who need a refresher before moving on to higher tier mathematics. Since Math is a sequential learning process, it is important for a student to begin where they are comfortable.
