Dual Credit Information from CNM


Students can take the Accuplacer exam in-person at CNM’s main campus or remotely (must have a computer with webcam and audio capability). Remote testing cannot be completed on Chromebooks. Students must schedule their exam ahead of time. They can visit the CNM Remote Testing and click on Schedule My Accuplacer button.

There is also a Directed Self-Placement (DSP) alternative option which does not require an appointment. Students can take the DSP from a cell phone or other online device, and is an alternative to the Accuplacer reading assessment. Students can visit the CNM Directed Self Placement site and click on Take the DSP Assessment button. Note: Students needing a math placement score will still need to take the math portion of the Accuplacer.
