What Classes do I Place into?

Due to impacts of COVID-19, Coconino Community College has suspended placement testing requirements for Summer 2021 and Fall 2021. Placement test requirements have been waived for most classes, even if you haven't taken the ACT, SAT, or ACCUPLACER. Students will be able to register for classes through self-placement, without the need for a placement exam or other exam score. For more information about all our placement options, please visit the Course Placement page.


But you don't have to do this alone: Let CCC advisors help you make informed and wise self-placement decisions. We strongly encourage students to meet with an academic advisor to discuss course options and determine proper placement into classes. For more information visit our Academic Advising page .


In addition to advising, you may also use the Multiple Measures Placement Grid . It explains how to use other placement measures (previous test scores, prior credit, etc.) to determine placement.


If none of these placement measures work for you, we are offering limited Accuplacer placement testing at our Lone Tree Testing Center.

What if my advisor recommends a placement test?

If you've already spoken with an advisor and determined that an Accuplacer placement test is right for you, we are offering Wednesday in-person testing sessions throughout Summer 2021.


Students should speak with an academic advisor before registering for classes or placement testing.

Nursing Entrance Exam

ATI TEAS (formerly HESI) Nursing Entrance Exam Testing and Registration

CCC’s nursing program requires that applicants take the ATI TEAS exam at CCC before applying to the nursing program. We no longer administer the HESI nursing entrance exam, as of May 2017. 

The test is typically offered several weeks before the Nursing Program’s application deadline, and students are offered the chance to retest before the application deadline. ATI TEAS scores from other institutions are also accepted with the nursing program application. 

Testing Fees: The test fee for ATI TEAS for the 2020 - 2021 school year will be $65 for students applying to CCC’s nursing program and $85 for students applying to a different program (but testing at CCC). The same fee scale applies to the retake exams in February. 

Testing manual: The official ATI-TEAS Study Manual (6th Edition) is available online.

Practice Tests: Practice tests are available on the ATI website .

To Register: Students must pay the testing fee at the Student Cashier desk at Lone Tree, or the Registration desk at Fourth Street, or by calling the Cashier's office at 928-226-4237.

The student will email their payment receipt and preferred testing date to the Testing Office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , where they will be registered for a testing session and given all necessary information about pre-testing expectations and how to prepare for their testing appointment.

Students are allowed to take the exam twice. You can register to take it once during January testing, and are allowed one retake in February. The same fee scale applies to retake exams. Students will be required to wait until February to retake the test, no exceptions. Students must re-take the entire exam; retesting for individual sections is not available. Students who missed January testing may take the exam in February, but will only be able to take the test once.


Due to COVID-19 restrictions, ATI TEAS testing will be proctored online this year.
