Early College

Robeson Community College has established a testing procedure for Early College students that allows students to test once per semester until they earn the minimum required scores to enter curriculum courses.

Placement is scheduled in the fall and spring semester for Early College students.  The testing procedure allows students who did not meet the desired placement scores established by RCC and the NCCCS on their first attempt, to test again the following semester.  The College allows retesting for ECHS students so they can remediate in areas where the minimum score was not achieved.  All remediation for ECHS students is provided by the Public Schools of Robeson County.  Remediation is required before they are allowed to test again.
