Placement Options

One or more of these measures may apply to you—please review all options.

  • No math placement test needed to enroll in beginning math level classes!  You can sign up for MAT 103 for Liberal Arts or MAT 114 for STEM/Business—no testing needed.
  • Use your “old” placement test scores!  You can use Accuplacer scores up to 5 years old.
  • Use your High School GPA, ACT, SAT, or GED scores!  We will accept high school GPAs for placement into English and Reading classes, no matter when you graduated.  All other scores valid for 5 years.  Minimum scores needed:  GPA=2.6, ACT=18, GED=165, SAT math 510, SAT Rdg&Wtg 460.
    • Enter your scores at https://my.maricopa.edu/services/placement (scroll down to where it says High School GPA/ACT/SAT/GED submission form.)  If you don’t have access to your supporting transcripts or score reports, you can still submit your scores, with the understanding that you’ll provide your transcripts ASAP.
  • Take the placement tests from home using EdReady! Review the EdReady Student Guide for instructions, then go to maricopa.edready.org to get started.

Need to test out of CRE 101 (test Reading Exempt)? You can take the Accuplacer Reading Test OR the EdReady Critical Reading & Critical Thinking Test!


EMCC Testing Services provides testing for new and continuing students following the standards and guidelines established by the National College Testing Association. Placement testing is untimed. Students will need to bring their EMCC Student Number (not MEID) and a valid photo ID for all testing services.
