Placement Testing

SUNY Canton uses the Accuplacer Placement Test to ensure accurate placement in English and Math courses. Incoming students who are required to complete a placement test will be notified via their SUNY Canton Email address and receive a notification on their New Student Checklist via UCanWeb.

The Accuplacer Placement Test must be completed before your advising appointment to ensure you receive a correct schedule. Details for scheduling Advising appointments can be found on your New Student Checklist in UCanWeb.

If you are a transfer student and have earned a C or better in a Freshman composition course, your transcripts must be on file in the Admissions Office ( or 315-386-7123) to be exempt from testing.
