Placement Testing

The NROC EdReady is administered to an applicant if required for admission to the college or their program of study. This battery consists of tests designed to measure reading/English and mathematical skills. The results of these tests are used to assist the student and College personnel in planning an appropriate program of study for each student. Testing sessions are scheduled throughout each semester and applicants are scheduled in advance for a test date. For individualized test preparation, contact the Academic Skills Center located on the third floor of the Learning Center Building. See website at:

Students with a US high school diploma with an unweighted GPA listed, or an associate degree or higher, or appropriate college credit, or appropriate ACT/SAT scores, or GED scores, or CCRG scores will be exempt from taking the placement test. Contact the Office of Admission and Records or Counseling Services. Wayne Community College accepts COMPASS, ASSET, ACCUPLACER or NC-DAP scores taken at other colleges. All scores used for placement must be less than ten years old.
