Course Placement Testing

Course placement determines a student’s readiness for college level courses.  Students need to be evaluated for course placement prior to registering for classes.

Riverland uses multiple measures to determine your course placement, including high school GPA, assessment scores, and previous coursework completed.

Please make sure you have submitted the following items to Riverland prior to your Advising & Registration appointment with your assigned advisor or you may not be able to register until they are received:

  1. Official Assessment Scores for Accuplacer, ACT, SAT, MCA, GED, CASAS, TABE 11/12
  2. Official High School transcript
  3. Official College transcripts

Don't have any of the documents above or would you like to raise your course placement level? You will need to register to take the Accuplacer test.

Ability to Benefit (ATB) testers - do not register for a test date online. Please contact the Assessment Coordinator at to schedule a time to take the Ability to Benefit test.
