   Testing in the Learning Center

The Learning Center administers the Accuplacer placement test to prospective students as needed.  You may schedule your Accuplacer test by visiting Time Center at the following link:
Quinebaug Valley Community College – TimeCenter

Information about the Accuplacer test can be provided by our Academic Advising team.  Sample tests and other materials to help you prepare can be found at the following link:
Next Generation Sample Questions and Practice Tests

The Learning Center also provides proctored testing for QVCC students that includes CLEP, DSST, and CBE.

CLEP and DSST testing are provided through outside services and all are fee-based.  CLEP and DSST provide transferable college credit if completed with a passing score.  Appointments are required. Please call (860) 932-4051 to schedule  an appointment.

Credit By Exam (CBE) tests are QVCC-provided tests that can be taken to gain college credit at QVCC.  CBE’s provide QVCC credit only; CBE credits do not transfer and the CBE does not effect the student’s GPA.  Students must be currently registered in at least one credit class at QVCC, have the permission of the faculty member in charge of the subject area, and pay a $35.00 fee to take a CBE.

All testing requires a photo ID to be shown upon arrival.  Students who do not have a photo ID with them will not be permitted to test until a valid photo ID is produced.

Please call (860) 932-4051 for more information regarding CLEPs, DSSTs, and CBEs.

Complete information on testing is available in the Learning Center.
