Before you can enroll in classes at WATC, you need to take a basic placement test, the ACCUPLACER. This free computerized test assesses reading, writing and math skills to determine which courses you’re prepared for so you can be the most successful. There is no appointment necessary to take the ACCUPLACER placement test.

If you have taken the ACT, you can bring us your score. If your ACT scores meet the minimum requirements listed below under “Test Score Requirements,” you may be exempt from taking the placement test. Click here to have your scores sent to WATC.

Proctored Tests

The WATC testing center proctors tests for current students who are required to take exams for their courses in a proctored setting. This includes make-up exams, online finals and other assessments. There is no charge for the proctoring services for these exams. Arrangements should be made through WATC course faculty. A valid Photo ID is required for each student taking a proctored assessment.
