Placement Testing

NPC is dedicated to student success.

To ensure that students select courses appropriate for their skill level, many students are required to participate in the course placement process. The following conditions define who must take part in the placement process:

  • Students enrolling in courses with placement prerequisites who have not previously taken a placement test.
  • Courses that require placement testing include all mathematics, English, and general education courses, as well as some program-specific courses, such as ATO courses, NAT 101 and EMT 132
    or EMT 244.
  • Students pursuing an NPC associate degree of any type, a Certificate of Applied Science of any type, or the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC).

Speak with an NPC Academic Adviser to see if you need to take placement tests. Allow at least two hours to complete the tests. Be sure to call an adviser ahead of time to make an appointment for testing.
