Policies and Procedures
Chesapeake College is committed to your success. To help you begin reaching your goals, the College offers an assessment service, the ACCUPLACER computer-based placement test. This assessment is used to measure your entry-level skills in mathematics, writing, and reading, the results of which allow academic advisors to assist you with your selection of courses.
No student will be denied admission as a result of test scores. However, you are required to complete the assessment testing as a condition of enrollment, and if your test scores indicate a need for skill development, you may be required to complete the appropriate developmental courses.
If you need additional general information, please contact the Office of Student Services by calling: 410-758-1537, or 410-228-4360, ext. 2250. If you have questions specific to testing, call the Testing Center at 410-822-5400, ext. 2344.
