COVID-19 Notice | 2020–2021 Academic Year
As we prepare for the upcoming academic year, the challenges and uncertainty for delivering course content remain in this COVID-19 environment. Edison State Community College intends to provide academic courses through a variety of formats, including hybrid, remote and online. Since unanticipated circumstances at any time could affect the ability to deliver course content in a particular manner, Edison State reserves the right to modify the delivery method for course content for the health and safety of students, faculty and staff. Irrespective of the delivery format Edison State’s competitive tuition and course fee structure shall remain the same for academic courses, consistent with published Edison State tuition and fee schedules. There will be no refund or reduction on tuition or course fees, since Edison State will be providing a full semester of instruction and awarding full academic credit to those who satisfactorily fulfill course requirements.

All degree- and certificate-seeking students are asked to apply for admission and complete the free ACCUPLACER Assessment before meeting with an admissions advisor. The ACCUPLACER Assessment provides both you and your advisor with important information about your current skill level, which in turn, determine the classes you will take at Edison State. Placement assessments are a measurement of current abilities—there is no pass or fail. The ACCUPLACER Assessment is given by appointment.
Students who have taken the ACT or SAT within the past two years, or who have taken college-level math or English may not need to take a placement assessment. See the following FAQs for more information.
Reading, writing and math are assessed using the ACCUPLACER Assessment, a computer-based software package used by Edison State and other colleges. Basic computer knowledge is also assessed. A speed test in keyboarding is also available for students entering an office-based program.
It is important that you do your best on the placement assessment. This assessment will indicate what level of coursework that you should enter. If you do not do your best, you may be placed into a class that is too easy for you, thus not making the best use of your time and financial resources.
If your ACCUPLACER scores are low, you may need to take basic or remedial courses that do not count toward your degree. On the other hand, if you score well, you can save a lot of time, money and boredom by skipping these courses. Use these resources to prepare!
