Ready to keep that admission process going? Take your placement exam. It doesn't take long. When you're done we'll help get a class schedule that's right for you.
The Delta College Testing Center seeks to provide high quality testing services that promote the intellectual growth of students, graduates, professionals and members of the community. We strive to administer tests in a secure, pleasant, accommodating, accessible and technologically advanced environment with the goal of promoting satisfaction and facilitating academic and professional success.
We are excited to see you! We have returned to primarily in-person testing, and we are happy to be back. We also understand that some students may prefer to test virtually, so we will continue to offer virtual testing options for Accuplacer tests (under Remote/Virtual). Please see the instructions below. If you are unable to find a time that works with your schedule using one method (i.e. remote) please feel free to check on the calendar for the other method (i.e. in-person).
Initial Set Up
Whether taking the test in-person or virtually, all students need to be admitted to Delta before testing. Please take the following steps for either in-person or virtual testing.
- Complete a Delta College application.
- Receive your Delta College ID number.
- Set up your Delta College Portal account.
- Fill out the Accuplacer Appointment Request form.

Important Testing information
Please apply prior to taking the Accuplacer. A Delta student ID number is required to test.
Make sure to bring a picture ID with you. There is no fee required for placement testing.
Delta welcomes and supports a diverse student body. We want you to think big about your future, and the Office of Disability Resources is here to help. Students with documented disabilities should contact the Disabilities Resource Office prior to testing to make arrangements for accommodations.
ACCUPLACER® is completely untimed, so the earlier you arrive, the more time you have to complete the test.
We subscribe to the National College Testing Association (NCTA) Professional Standards and Guidelines and are committed to maintain the highest compliance with nationally recognized professional testing standards and practices.
