Placement Assessment

Wor-Wic Community College requires college readiness competency on the Accuplacer Assessment in reading, writing and math as a condition of enrollment into the SU Bridges Program. Your SAT or ACT scores may exempt you from a portion or all parts of the Accuplacer.  If testing is required, Salisbury University Office of Admissions will communicate the need for testing by US mail

  • Some students may be exempt from placement tests based on SAT or ACT scores. You are exempt from some or all placement testing if you scored a minimum 550 on the critical reading or math sections of the SAT or at least a 21 on the reading, math or writing components of the ACT.
     
  • SU Bridges has limited enrollment. Participation is on a first-come first-served basis. It is important that you take the Accuplacer assessment seriously because the three tests will determine your eligibility for the program. To learn more about the Accuplacer visit www.accuplacer.org.
     
  • Salisbury University will be automatically notified of your registration and scores. Accuplacer scores are also provided immediately following the completion of the assessment. You may accept our offer of admission by paying the $400 non-refundable admissions deposit through your GullNet account. This feature will be available 48 hours after passing scores have been earned.
     

Assessment Information - How to Register for the Required Accuplacer Assessments

You may take the Accuplacer free of charge at Wor-Wic Community College; no appointment is necessary.  Please visit www.worwic.edu, Future Students > Admissions > Diagnostic Testing for Testing Center Hours.

OR take the Assessment at another location:

Step 1.  Find a location. Visit it www.salisbury.edu/subridges/testinglocations.html  to find a location offering the Accuplacer near you.

Step 2. Call your chosen testing center to be sure this location will administer the Accuplacer to you and obtain a contact name and email address. Note that you must call this location again at Step 5 to make an appointment. Fees may apply and vary by location.

Step 3. Send an e-mail to Wor-Wic Community College’s Testing Center at testingctr@worwic.edu indicating that you are a prospective SU Bridges student: “I am a prospective SU Bridges student, first name, last (SU ID#). I will be testing at [location]. Please send necessary testing information to [testing center contact person] at [email address].” Please allow WWCC 48 hours to respond to you with a confirmation that a request for remote testing has been made at the location requested.

Step 4. Accuplacer will then e-mail you the important testing information needed at check-in at the testing center you selected.

Step 5. Contact your chosen testing center to schedule an appointment for testing.
