Placement Test Information and Exemptions

Transfer students who plan to transfer credits from another college may be exempt from taking the placement test. Students that are transferring credits from a college that is not part of MnSCU (Minnesota State College and Universities) need to send ICC an official copy of their college transcript. To register, please make an appointment to meet with an ICC counselor by calling 218-322-2340 or 218-322-2390.


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 unless you are transferring English and math credits from another college. The test does not determine acceptance, but is used for course placement. The placement test can be taken at any Minnesota community college. The test is NOT timed, so you may pace yourself. On average, students take two hours to complete all three assessments (reading, math and computers). Students must have a picture ID to take the placement test.


You may wish to prepare for placement tests by reviewing the following sample questions and study materials:


ACT Test -
Students who have a English sub-score of 18+ or a reading sub-score of 21+ are exempt from taking the English and reading test and are ready for college-level English and reading classes. An ACT sub-score in Math of 22+  means students are ready to enroll in college algebra, statistics or contemporary math. Students need to submit a copy of their ACT score to ICC.
