The Testing Center administers a variety of testing services to prospective, current NHCC students, and the community to support students to reach their academic goals.
Once you have submitted your application and have been accepted to NHCC, the next step in the enrollment process is to take the Placement Test. If you are a transfer student or have taken the ACCUPLACER, ACT or SAT tests, you may submit a Placement Test Waiver Request form for an evaluation for exemption.
The Testing Center staff provide proctoring services to support instructor make-up and online exams for current students, test accommodations for students registered with NHCC Access Services, and individuals attending other MnSCU institutions. We proctor exams for individuals from non-MnSCU institutions and other public or private agencies for a fee.
