Accuplacer Exam

General Information
The College Board has developed ACCUPLACER Computerized Placement Tests (CPTs), with the help of committees of college faculty, to provide information about skill levels in reading, writing, English and mathematics. Community Colleges use these scores to determine appropriate course placement for students.

The tests are computerized, with students using either the keyboard or a mouse to enter answers. A Test Administrator is always present and has the ability to resolve any difficulties that may occur.

Each test is adaptive, so that the computer automatically determines which questions are presented based on correct responses to prior questions. This technique selects questions that are of an appropriate level of difficulty for the tester. With the exception of the essay, the tests are not timed. Students have one hour to complete the essay.

Eligibility
Any individual may take the Computerized Placement Tests at the Center for Alternative Studies and Educational Testing.

Financial Aid Information    

 Click this link to enter college name and state: calculate college costs   then enter family income range to estimate approximate costs after financial aid

NORTHEAST METRO TECH HS offers either a Financial Aid/College Goal Night in January or Februarywww.fafsaday.org.  Students can access financial aid through four sources: Federal, State, College or University, and outside private scholarships.

FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid- www.fafsa.ed.gov.  The FAFSA form is done online and requires tax and financial information to determine the expected family contribution. All colleges require this form from financial aid applicants. It cannot be filed until after January 1st of the senior year and should be filed as soon as possible after that date.  Each state has its own filing deadline date.  Students and parents/guardians must apply for a PIN (Personal Identification Number) weeks prior to filling out the FAFSA form.

CSS PROFILE- College Scholarship Service- www.collegeboard.org   Colleges Which Require CSS:  https://profileonline.collegeboard.org/prf/PXRemotePartInstitutionServlet/PXRemotePartInstitutionServlet.srv 
This is required by some private colleges and universities in addition to the FAFSA.  The form is available in the fall of senior year and can be filed as early as October when you apply to colleges.  Go to www.collegeboard.org , click to view the PROFILE Student Guide, click to view the list of colleges, universities, and scholarship programs that use the CSS Profile.  You can also access the Noncustodial PROFILE (NCP) and IDOC Services documentation there.

The FAFSA and CSS Profile are the two primary applications that students and parents complete for the purpose of applying for loans, grants and work-study programs. Families should plan to complete both forms if the student intends to apply to a range of colleges and universities. Some colleges and universities have their own institutional financial aid and scholarship forms.

SCHOLARSHIPS – (Internet sites and NEMRVS scholarships)
Scholarships provide another source of financial aid for students. Students should check out the links on their collegeboard.org account home page to find need based, academic/merit based, college or university based, or company based applications. Speak to your future college’s Financial Aid Office, since many colleges and universities have their own scholarship money. See Northeast's Scholarship Coordinator for an application for in-house scholarships.

ADAMS and KOPLIK SCHOLARSHIPS:  Massachusetts State colleges and universities honor the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship and the Stanley Z. Koplik Certificate of Mastery, which are awarded based on MCAS scores.  These scholarships waive tuition costs only. 

 Students and families may also search the following websites to identify potential sources of financial aid/scholarships:

Students and families are encouraged to access the following Internet sites to help them with their college searches: 

  • kudernavigator.com
  • collegeboard.org

These sites offer services, which ask for student and family information (background, abilities, interests, etc.), and then help students and families to match their information with colleges and programs that may best suit their student’s interests and abilities. If your family does not have access to the Internet at home, a number of resources are available in our library and in the guidance office.

A transfer program between the Massachusetts Community Colleges and Universities. click here for : MassTransfer  or enter url: http://www.mass.edu/masstransfer/students/linkedprograms.asp   Click here for approved program: Approved MassTransfer programs   or enter url: http://www.mass.edu/forstufam/admissions/TransferAdmin/PublicList.asp 

The MassTransfer program is available to community college students who are enrolled in approved academic programs. Based on program agreements, any student enrolled in an approved transfer program at a Massachusetts Community College who earns an Associate Degree with a 2.5 or higher cumulative grade point average is eligible and is guaranteed admission to participating state universities (all except Massachusetts College of Art).

MassTransfer students who wish to be admitted to a major that requires specific courses or grades must meet those requirements.
You must complete and submit an INTENT TO ENROLL FORM and transcripts from your community college and high school to the undergraduate Admissions office at the state college or UMASS campus where you plan to enroll.

Enrolling in these programs does not obligate you in any way or prevent you from exploring options at other colleges and universities.
Stop by or call your local community college and ask to speak with either an admissions or transfer counselor.         
You can also contact one of the participating colleges or university campuses:

Bridgewater State University University of Massachusetts at Amherst
Fitchburg State University University of Massachusetts Boston
Framingham State University University of Massachusetts Dartmouth
Massachusetts College of Art University of Massachusetts Lowell
Mass Maritime Academy  
Mass College of Liberal Arts  
Salem State University  
Westfield State University  
Worcester State University  

Students interested in participating in this program should speak with an admissions counselor prior to enrollment at the college of their choice.

The tuition advantage program is an additional benefit for students enrolled in the joint admissions program.  This program awards qualified students a waiver for one-third off the in-state tuition rate.  The tuition advantage program is not available for summer or evening programs.

You must be a participant in joint admissions, earn the associate degree from your community college, and have a 3.0 cumulative grade point average upon graduation. This entitles you to a 33% reduction on in-state tuition for your first year at a state college or university. To renew the waiver for a second year, you must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average.

All joint admissions students file an INTENT TO ENROLL FORM when they are ready to transfer to the state college or University campus of their choice. Procedures to claim your tuition advantage benefits vary from college to college. Contact your community college transfer office for specific details.

Many institutions have their own sources of aid, and require their own forms be submitted in addition to federal and/or state financial aid forms.  As your student requests application materials from institutions, they should also request financial aid materials including applications.  Note the deadlines for these financial aid applications as they may vary from application and other financial aid application deadlines.
If your family does not have access to the Internet resources are available at your local public library.

 

The admissions standards for the state universities (Salem State, Framingham, Fitchburg, Westfield, Bridgewater, MCLA, Worcester) and the University of Massachusetts system (Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth, Lowell) emphasize a strong academic high school background so that students enter college ready to learn. These standards represent minimum requirements; meeting them does not guarantee admission, since campus officials consider a wide range of factors in admissions decisions. Students shall have fulfilled all requirements for the high school diploma or its equivalent upon enrollment.

It is important to note that admissions standards for the state’s community colleges differ. Community colleges may admit any high school graduate or GED recipient.

SAT SCORES ARE CRITICAL TO ADMISSIONS DECISIONS AND ALL SOPHOMORES OPEN A COLLEGE BOARD ACCOUNT AT NE AND SIGN UP FOR THE QUESTION OF THE DAY AND FREE PRACTICE TESTS ONLINE.

Freshman Applicants
The new admissions standards for freshmen applicants have two main parts:

  1. 16 required academic courses.
  2. A minimum required grade point average (GPA) earned in college preparatory courses completed at the time of application.

Applicants must also submit an SAT or ACT score – Use Kuder as guide.

Sixteen college preparatory courses distributed as follows are required. (A course is equivalent to one full school year of study. Courses count toward the distribution only if passed.)

  • English 4 courses
  • Mathematics 3 courses (Algebra I & II and Geometry or Trigonometry, or comparable coursework)
  • Sciences 3 courses (including 2 courses with laboratory work)
  • Social Sciences 2 courses (including 1 course in U.S. History)
  • Foreign Languages 2 courses (in a single language) 
  • Electives 2 courses (from the above subjects or from the Arts & Humanities or Computer Sciences

Vocational-technical students must complete 16 college preparatory courses, distributed in the same manner and with the same minimum grade point averages required of other high school graduates, with the following exceptions:

  • Two vocational-technical courses may be used to fulfill the two required electives.
  • Vocational-technical high school graduates who do not complete the two required college preparatory foreign language courses must complete an additional elective college preparatory course for a total of three such courses, and satisfy one of the following options:
    • Complete at least one Carnegie unit of foreign language
    • Complete a fourth Carnegie unit of math or science (which need not be a lab course)
    • Complete one Carnegie unit of computer science. Note: A Carnegie unit represents a full academic year of study or its equivalent in a specific subject.

This requirement will remain in effect until the Department of Education (DOE) implements its requirements regarding foreign language study for vocational-technical students. At that time, vocational-technical applicants for admission to UMASS and the state colleges will be required to meet DOE requirements for foreign language study.

NO APPLICANT WITH A HIGH SCHOOL GPA BELOW 2.00 MAY BE ADMITTED TO A STATE COLLEGE OR UNIVERISTY CAMPUS
Each state college or UMASS campus to which a student applies will re-calculate the GPA for purposes of applying the admissions standards.
Computer software for use in calculating weighted GPA is available on-line via the Board of Higher Education website www.mass.edu

Minimum Required Grade Point Average (GPA)

The GPA must be achieved based on all college preparatory courses completed at the time of application and should be weighted for accelerated (Honors or Advanced Placement) courses. Effective Fall 2001 the required minimum weighted high school GPA is 3.0 for the four-year public campuses.

Effective Date State College GPA University GPA
Fall 2001 3.00 3.0

 

How to Convert Your GPA to a 4.0 Scale

Colleges report GPA (grade point average) on a 4.0 scale. The top grade is an A, which equals 4.0. This is the standard scale at most colleges, and many high schools use it.

If your high school uses a different or weighted system, you need to convert your GPA to a 4.0 scale for this tool. Talk to your school counselor or get a rough conversion by substituting these values:

A+ (97-100) = 4.0
A (93-96) = 4.0
A- (90-92) = 3.7

B+ (87-89) = 3.3
B (83-86) = 3.0
B- (80-82) = 2.7

C+ (77-79) = 2.3
C (73-76) = 2.0
C- (70-72) = 1.7

D+ (67-69) = 1.3
D (65-66) = 1.0
E/F (below 65) = 0.0
