Placement Testing Information

The Center for Academic Success (CAS) provides placement testing services for traditional undergraduate prospective students. As part of the enrollment process, Eastern Nazarene College uses ACCUPLACER by CollegeBoard to assess prospective students’ college readiness.The ACCUPLACER exams test students' skills in math, reading, and writing, all important skills necessary for college success. Score results on ACCUPLACER exams determine placement into developmental education courses and eligibility for waiving these courses.

Due to COVID-19 this year, ENC is not requiring students to take the placement exam. You can choose not to take the exam. However, if you decide not to take the exam you will automatically be placed in developmental courses based on your most recent ACT or SAT scores. If you decide to take the test, and place out of the developmental courses, you will be registered for the first level English and Math classes for your program.

Take the exam at home or at an alternative location of your choice, please e-mail us at, and send us the following information:

· Date and time, you plan on testing

· Location (State/Time Zone)

NOTE: You must schedule your test five days in advance. For questions or concerns, please e-mail:, or call: 617-657-9768. Also, you will need access to stable internet, laptop or desktop computer, and a phone. Accuplacer is not compatible with Chrome Book.

The last day to test is July 31st.  Limited testing opportunities will be available to students admitted after that deadline or with extenuating circumstances.
