The Accuplacer computerized placement test can be taken in your area. Contact Tammy Wood at 218-285-2204 or tammy.wood@rainyriver.edu for more information.

You may be exempt from taking all or a part of the assessment if you:

  • Submit subject area test scores from the ACT or SAT, to demonstrate academic readiness to enroll in college level courses and waive Accuplacer testing, or
  • Completed the Accuplacer assessment testing at another college (within the past 2 years for Reading and English and past 1 year for Math) and the documentation of your scores was provided to RRCC, or
  • Successfully completed collegiate English and/or Math courses (grade of C or better) that meets the requirements for your RRCC program and provided RRCC with an official copy of your transcript.

Once you’ve completed the Accuplacer, call 218-285-7722 to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor to register for your classes. Prior to your appointment, look over our semester class schedule to become familiar with classes you’re interested in taking.
