The Larimer Testing Centers administer a variety of national and local exams. If you would like to take an exam that is not on this list please reach out to us.
Placement Test (Accuplacer)
The state-required placement test will help us make sure you’re signed up for the right level of classes. Learn more about the placement test. Front Range students are able to self-place into English and Math with their advisors, if you prefer. For Math higher than MAT 121 (College Algebra), please schedule an Accuplacer exam at our Testing Center. No cost for the first exam, $5 for retakes.
Foreign Language Course Placement Exam
If needed for advanced placement in FRCC Language classes (Spanish, French, German, Russian)
CLEP & DSST Exams ($25 proctor fee)
Take these exams to earn college credit by testing out of select classes instead of devoting a semester to them. Learn more about CLEP & DSST exams.
