Welcome to Testing Services

Maricopa Community Colleges use Placement Testing to assist students and advisors in determining initial course placement in English, Reading and Mathematics courses. Placement testing is a required enrollment step for new students. Placement testing is free.  For more information about the placement test and the testing schedule, choose the appropriate link on the left. 

Please Note: For students who want to transfer their test scores to EMCC, we only accept Accuplacer tests in Reading, Arithmetic, Elementary Algebra & College Level Math, and Writeplacer tests for English. We no longer accept COMPASS or ASSET exams.

The HESI A2 exam is required for students applying to the Maricopa Community Colleges District Nursing Programs (AAS degree at any Maricopa Community College.) The fee is $40.00*. The HESI A2 exam is a four-hour timed test.  Students who are testing on Monday through Thursday should come in by 1 p.m.  Students who test on Fridays should come in by 12 p.m.

Students attending other colleges or universities may request to have a test proctored here with proper protocol and scheduling. The cost for proctored exams is $20.00* per test.  Call 623-935-8860 to schedule a proctored test.

The CELSA exam is a 45-minute timed exam for English Language Learners.
