International Placement Testing
All A-B Tech applicants are required to take the NC-DAP/Accuplacer for placement in English, reading, and math. International students must take the NC-DAP prior to admission. If you wish to take the NC-DAP at A-B Tech because you are already in the Asheville area or in the United States on a separate visa, please indicate this on the International Application Supplement.
If you’ll be taking this test in your home country or outside of Asheville, you must have a proctor for the exam. The proctor must be a university official and will be responsible for administering the online exam. Our office will contact the proctor directly. Please supply the required proctor information on the International Application Supplement so our office can make arrangements for this test. You will be contacted regarding the placement test once all other required documentation has been received and approved.
All other applicants must submit TOEFL scores. These scores must be sent directly to A-B Tech from the testing agency or may be included with your application packet.
For additional information on taking the TOEFL, contact the nearest American Consular Office or see the TOEFL website at www.toefl.org. You can also call the TOEFL agency in the United States at 1-609-771-7100, Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 9:45 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. New York, USA time.
