New Students who are registering for seven or more college credits or plan to enroll in an English or math course are required to take the placement test. The test assesses reading, math and computer skills and provides valuable information we can use when registering for classes. Student must bring picture ID to the placement test. Student can test and register on the same day. There is a short orientation session followed by testing and registration.
Transfer students who plan to transfer credits from another college may be exempt from taking the placement test. Students who attended a college that is not part of the Minnesota State system need to send MRC an official copy of their college transcript. All transfer students should make an appointment to meet with an MRC counselor/advisor to register for classes. Call 218-749-7750 or 218-744-7493.
Placement Test Exemptions - Students who have taken the ACT, SAT or MCA tests may be exempt from taking the placement test. Qualifying scores can be viewed on the placement test & registration page.
Post-Secondary Options (PSEO) students cannot test and register on the same day. Fall semester PSEO students must test by the deadlines listed for each PSEO registration session (see schedule above).
The placement test can be taken at any Minnesota community college. The test is NOT timed, so you may pace yourself. It will begin at the posted time, and on average, students take two hours to complete both assessments (reading and math).
