Admissions Testing at DC

Doral College offers testing services for the College Board’s Next Generation ACCUPLACER suite of exams. Students should expect to take the following sections:

  • Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics (QAS)
  • Reading
  • English

Students seeking to qualify for dual enrollment are not charged for testing services. However, they must attend a participating affiliate school and complete an application for admission in order to do so. Qualifying scores on the ACCUPLACER can be viewed here (link to DE Admissions requirements).

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Doral College has transitioned to Remote-Proctoring the ACCUPLACER via Zoom. Students seeking to test must be pre-screened and referred to test by their school’s dual enrollment advisor. Once a student is referred for testing, they are issued a testing voucher which they can then use to schedule a test session via Calendly. Currently, test sessions are offered once a day, Monday-Friday, and by special appointment. 

Remote Testing Guidelines

  • Remote-proctored testing is available via zoom; no other video conferencing service will be used.
  • ACCUPLACER voucher numbers are unique and will be emailed to each student referred for testing with the directions for scheduling a test session—it is the student’s responsibility to schedule their own test session.
  • Per ACCUPLACER guidelines, remote-proctored sessions are limited to a maximum of five (5) students. 
  • Students must schedule test sessions at least 24 hours in advance and must logon at least ten (10) minutes prior to the scheduled exam time.
  • After testing, each student will receive his/her score automatically.
  • Students who did not meet the 3.0 GPA requirement at the time of initial admission will continue to be unable to take additional courses until  proof of qualifying GPA is submitted.
  • ACCUPLACER system compatibility requirements may be viewed here

On the day of the test

  • Sit in a quiet place where you will be undisturbed while testing.
  • Clear the workspace so that it is just your monitor, mouse, keyboard, blank scratch paper, and pencil.
  • Calculators are NOT ALLOWED unless you have a prescribed accommodation. Accommodations must be approved in advance. Contact the student affairs help desk if you have any questions.
  • Be sure to have your photo ID ready. You will need to show it to your DC Proctor. Acceptable forms of photo identification include current and valid: Driver’s license, State-Approved or federal ID, College ID, High School ID, Middle School ID, Passport, or Naturalization card. 
  • Be ready to use your web or computer cameral to show that you are alone in the room. Your door must be closed and your testing area should be free of all prohibited items.
  • You cannot leave the room during your test session. If you do so, your test will be cancelled. Similarly, if someone enters your room, your test will be cancelled.
  • If you have any questions, you may use the chat function to communicate with your DC Proctor.

Once the campus re-opens, testing will be available by appointment. Additionally, proctored sessions may be provided at affiliate school campuses for groups of students. For more information regarding ACCUPLACER testing, or to schedule students to test, please contact the student affairs help desk.
