Alternate Placement Test Options

You can take an EdReady (formerly NC-DAP or Accuplacer) test at A-B Tech, or you can substitute official scores from an alternate test taken within the last five years. We accept scores from the SAT, ACT, COMPASS, and ASSET tests. The alternate placement test scores we'll accept are available on our website.

If your scores are below the minimum requirements, you'll need to use one of the other placement options listed.
