Please review all information below regarding Accuplacer.

Accuplacer is a computerized assessment that provides information about a student’s math skills and preparation for college-level course work. The assessment is an un-timed placement test. The scores will help place students in courses that develop the necessary skills for success in future classes.

This assessment measures knowledge in Algebra Problems, Numerical Skills, Trigonometry,
Geometry, Integers, Fractions, Decimals, Exponents, Rations and Proportions, Percentages, Averages, Substitution, Setting-up Equations, Basic Operation/Polynomials, Linear Equations, Exponents, and Rational Numbers.

Students who have not taken an Algebra course within the last 7 years and have not earned a minimum of 15 credit hours from a regionally accredited institution of higher education may be required to complete the Accuplacer test before starting classes at Mercy College of Ohio.

If a student has been admitted to the Nursing program and shows a need for additional coursework in mathematics as identified by Accuplacer placement testing, the student will not be able to start the clinical portion of the program until the courses are successfully completed.

The Accuplacer assessment will be administered at the Youngstown site and must be taken as soon as possible after recipient of your acceptance letter. To schedule Accuplacer, call Darnell Irvine at 330-480- 3823 to request a time between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Students have two attempts to take the Accuplacer assessment. Mercy College may not offer the course work needed, which is identified by Accuplacer assessment scores. Admitted students should cautiously note that assessing into some remedial coursework would delay enrollment at Mercy College. The scores will be reviewed and students will be notified if the enrollment is delayed.
