Five steps to begin your future at Middlesex

1) Apply for admission to the college

  • You may apply online or call 1-800-818-3434 to request an application.
  • Once we receive your application, we will send you an admission letter and forms to return to us.

2) Schedule your College Placement Test appointment

  • Schedule online  or call 1-800-818-3434 to make an appointment for your placement test.
  • If you have graduated from high school within the last three years and can provide a transcript documenting a minimum overall 2.7 GPA, you are exempt from English and math placement testing.  A score of 500 or higher on the evidence -based Reading and Writing section of the SAT may be used to waive the English portion of the test. 
  • If you are transferring credits in English or math from another college or have taken the MCC Placement testing at an earlier date, you may qualify for an exemption from all or part of the test.
  • Placement testing is an important foundational piece of your education; the results determine the level of coursework you need to take in English, reading and math. We want you to do your best, and so we offer a number of ways to prepare.  
  • Please note that you will need to show a picture ID at your appointment.
