Placement Testing Policies

The following placement testing policies apply to all students who test at Central Carolina Community College:

  • Students must present photo identification in order to take the NCDAP.
  • NCDAP scores will be valid to use for placement for five (5) years.
  • Students are permitted to take the NCDAP twice within five (5) years. If a student retests, the highest score on each section will be used for advisement and course placement.
  • Students are not permitted to take the NCDAP if they are currently enrolled in a developmental course.
  • NCDAP scores are transferable to other colleges with permission of the student.
  • Additional testing may be required for students, who based upon placement test scores, are placed into Mastering Mathematics or Mastering Reading.
  • It is the discretion of the Dean of Admissions and/or the Vice President of Student Services to grant or deny further retesting attempts or testing exemptions.
