Accuplacer Assessment

As part of Minnesota State policy, PTCC assess new incoming students’ academic readiness for credit bearing college curriculum to assure students have the academic content knowledge to have a high likelihood of success in our courses. Students who are admitted to PTCC must demonstrate their academic readiness to enroll in courses that require college-level reading, writing, and/or math skills. Students can demonstrate their academic readiness based on their performance on a variety of assessments.  

Students may submit an official copy of any of the following assessment scores to determine their eligibility to enroll into college-level courses at Pine Technical and Community College to the PTCC Admission office. Scores are valid for 5 years. 

  • ACT Reading 21, ACT Math 22
  • SAT Reading 480, SAT College Algebra 530
  • MCA Reading 1047, MCA Math 1158 

Accuplacer Assessment will be used if the above scores do not meet the college level bench marks to demonstrate academic readiness to enroll in college-level courses.
