Orientation & Testing

Placement Testing

Placement at NMC refers to the math and English courses that are the best fit for you to begin your academic plan.

We can determine your placement by considering your high school GPA, SAT, ACT or GED test scores, previous college courses and college credit, or the Accuplacer placement exam.

Orientation and Registration

Orientation and registration for new students is a convenient one-stop process. When students receive their acceptance letter to NMC, they also receive information about the Orientation and Registration program that is designed to acquaint new students with the campus and to plan for the best schedule of classes to insure success at NMC. Part of the orientation program includes a placement test which assesses skills in reading, writing and math as discussed in the previous section. Students will have an opportunity to discuss their test scores one-on-one with an advisor as well as transfer possibilities and other pertinent course information. After selecting the best individual schedule, students then register for classes... all part of the one-stop orientation and registration program!
