Testing Services at CCC
Our testing center administers exams for online college courses, the ACCUPLACER test, and CLEP tests. Schedule your test with us by phone at 605-773-2160 or email at least 3 days in advance.
Online Course Test Proctoring
We administer tests for anyone in the South Dakota Board of Regents with no administration cost to the student. Proctoring is available between 8:15am and 12pm, or between 1:15pm and 5pm, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Many online class exams must be proctored, online or on paper. We also proctor tests for out-of-state schools. If you're interested in having your exam proctored at CCC, contact us to find out which, if any, charges may apply.
ACCUPLACER Test Proctoring
The ACCUPLACER test is available for technical schools and non-traditional university students. This is an untimed, computerized test that helps your college evaluate your skills to place you into appropriate courses. The ACCUPLACER offers tests in reading, writing, and math. You will receive your test results immediately upon completion.
If you have been accepted as a student by a South Dakota Board of Regents public university, you will need direction from them to schedule your ACCUPLACER test. ACCUPLACER testing is available 8:15am and 12pm, or between 1:15pm and 5pm, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Test-takers not accepted to a South Dakota Board of Regents public university degree program will be charged an administration fee in addition to the cost of their test. All test-takers challenging an ACT or earlier ACCUPLACER score will be charged for the cost of their test.
CLEP Test Proctoring
Developed by the College Board, CLEP is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program, available at more than 2,900 colleges and universities. These exams are offered in numerous introductory-level subjects and enable students to earn college credit and accelerate their education.
As a first step, we recommend you check with the registrar of your college or university to be sure they will accept the exam you plan to take for college credit and that the exam will meet your degree program requirements. Students must then register for the CLEP exam more than two weeks in advance of when you'd like to take it. Following registration, contact us to schedule your exam appointment. We administer CLEP tests at 9:30am and 1:30pm on non-holiday Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays. Please email us your appointment request, indicating 1) which exam you have registered to take, 2) whether you would like to be here at 9:30 am or at 1:30 pm, and 3) both your desired and your alternate testing dates.
Each CLEP test costs $89 payable to CLEP via My Account, plus a separate $25 administration fee to be covered in a check made payable to CCC on the testing date. Test-takers must bring their CLEP Exam Registration Ticket, as well as the check for the administration fee and their CLEP-approved ID, in order for CCC to administer their exam on the testing date. If still minors, test-takers may use the College Board ID Form as their required form of ID. Visit the CollegeBoard website for information about preparing for the CLEP test.
