What is placement testing and can I submit transcripts from my last school or from high school instead?
To Take the Basic Skills Assessment (BSA), Follow These Easy Steps:

After receiving your Banner ID, you should:
1)Go to www.mxcc.edu/bsa and read the Frequently Asked Questions on the “Accuplacer FAQ” page to familiarize yourself with the entire process. 2) Review: Take the sample tests and use the study sites on the “Test Preparation” page so that you are sure to do your best. 3) Schedule: Look at the dates and locations we are testing, pick one that works for you, and make an appointment on the “Schedule an Appointment” page.
4) Score:  Come in well rested and prepared to do your best on assessment day!

Who Must Take the BSA
MxCC requires skill assessments in English and mathematics before students enroll in math, reading, or writing courses, courses with any math or English prerequisites, or enroll in an academic program.

Test exemptions are as follows:
Students who have an associate degree or higher or higher level degree may be exempt;
Students who have completed college level mathematics and English may be exempt;
Part-time and non-degree students who have not accumulated 12 credit hours, unless they wish to take an English or math class, or a course that requires a math or English prerequisite.
SAT Scores:  Students who have taken the math and verbal portions of the SAT within the past four years may receive a waiver from the Basic Skills Assessment Test.
Math:  A score greater than 450 will place a student into MAT*137E; a score greater than 500 will place a student into MAT*137; and a score greater than 550 will place a student into a math course with a prerequisite of MAT*137 such as MAT*146, MAT*168 or MAT*173.  However, we strongly encourage students to take the placement test since they may place into a higher-level course.
English:  A score of 500 or higher on the Critical Reading of the SAT will place a student into ENG*101.
ACT Scores:  Students who have taken the math and verbal portions of the ACT within the past four years may receive a waiver from the Basic Skills Assessment.
Math:  A score of 17 – 18 on the ACT Math test will place a student into MAT*137E; a score of 19 – 21 on the ACT Math test will place a student into MAT*137, and a score of 22 or higher on the ACT Math test will place a student into a math course with a prerequisite of MAT*137 such as MAT*146, MAT*168 or MAT*173.  However, we strongly encourage students to take the placement test since they may place into a higher-level course.
English:  A score of 20 or higher on the ACT Reading portion or a score of 47 or higher on the ACT English and Reading portions will place a student into ENG*101.
If you believe that you are exempt from the placement test, please contact the Admissions Office at 860-343-5719 or the College Learning Center at 860-343-5770.

Is financial aid available for summer courses? What payment options are available?
If you’re a continuing student with money remaining in your Pell Grant award, you can apply this toward your summer courses. Payment is expected at time of registration. There is no financial aid or payment plans available for summer credit courses; however, some non-credit courses like Certified Nurse Aide (CNA), Patient Care Technician, and Medical Coding at Billing do have financial aid through WIA Funds- you may contact CT Works @ 203-238-3688 to inquire.
Where do I get a printout of my schedule?
Once you pay for your courses, you’ll either be given directions on how to print out your schedule, or if paying at the Middletown campus, the Business Office will give you one with your receipt.
Where do I get my photo ID?
On the Main campus in Middletown, your ID is issued by the Communication staff (center right next to the Admissions and Registrar’s office), and at the Meriden Center, the security guard, located at the front entrance, will help you with your ID card. So, once you have registered and made payment, head on over to get your student ID.  Your ID is used to gain access to some buildings and for free summer giveaways such as the summer ice cream truck treats and valuable discounts to theaters, summer trips, and gym memberships.
Will my course credits transfer to my university of four-year College?
Most courses at MxCC transfer smoothly to universities and four-year colleges, but it is always a good idea to work with your academic counselor at your college to make sure before you take the course.
