Virtual Registration Check List

To place you in the correct classes, the College will assess your current level in Math, Reading and English through a tool called Accuplacer. We highly recommend reviewing the Accuplacer Prep information prior to taking the assessment. Doing so may help you score higher on the assessment, which may lead to you needing fewer courses and spending less money. To review for the assessment, visit Welcome to ACCUPLACER – The College Board.

To test remotely, you will need a computer (desktop or laptop or chromebook) with the latest operating system and a webcam and microphone. Unfortunately, other devices such as cellphones, iPads, Surface (and other tablets), as well as MacBook Air will not work.

Please note that there is also limited in-person, proctored testing at Marple at 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. daily.  You will need to make an appointment ahead of time for this option. 

Please contact [email protected] or call 610-325-2776 to schedule an in-person or remote testing session.

If you have prior college experience, please have an unofficial copy of your transcript available. We may not be able to complete a full evaluation on the spot; however, we may be able to use your transcript for advising and registration purposes for the day. Please visit for additional information on ways to determine your placement (e.g., SAT, ACT, AP Exams, etc.)
