Path to ECC
UPDATE AS OF JULY 2021: To afford students the quickest path to starting classes, ECC offers Placement Test Waivers as an alternative to the Accuplacer Placement Test. Prospective students can submit transcripts that contain English and Math course grades or test results for evaluation. For possible Placement Test Waivers submit the following eligible documents (in PDF format) for review.
The following documents are accepted for Placement Test Waiver Evaluation by the testing center:
**Note: You must have your Official U.S. High School Transcripts submitted to Enrollment services at [email protected]
You can submit all other eligible documents to [email protected]
Please ensure your email includes the student’s: First Name, Last Name, and ECC Student ID Number
Once the documentation has been reviewed and the appropriate waiver(s) issued, the student will receive an email informing them of the next steps for Advisement and Registration. The process for Test Waivers is faster than arranging a placement test.
If a placement test is required, students can make an appointment at www.registerblast.com/essex/exam/list. Select the MAIN CAMPUS or WEST ESSEX CAMPUS.
If you took an Accuplacer placement test at another U.S. college or university in the last three years, the complete score report should be sent from that institution to the Testing Center at the Main Campus for evaluation.
