3. MCCC Placement Testing and Course Selection Trip - TBD
  • Your application MUST be submitted prior to your taking the test. This is so that we can assign your test scores to your personal student I.D. number. If you are unsure if your application is on file please complete your application now and hand it in to us or contact our office at 609-570-3623 or 609-570-3224 or 609-570-3244.
  • If you did not put your social security number on your application we cannot assign you a student I.D. and therefore your application will not be processed.
  • If you have taken the SAT or ACT you may be eligible to be exempt from a part of the test.  If you fall under these numbers, please let your counselor know and bring a copy of your scores form with you on testing day.
    • Students who score 450 or better on the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (ERW) and/or 500 or better on the Math portions of the SAT are considered college-ready.
    • Students who score a 4 OR 5 on the Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Career (PARCC) English Language Arts/Literacy Grade 11 exam and a 4 OR 5 on the PARCC Algebra II Exam are considered college-ready.
    • Students who do not take the SAT or achieve the required PARCC test scores will have to take the college placement test (Accuplacer) to determine placement.
    • The above SAT and PAARC cut score revisions become effective for placement in the spring 2018 semester and apply to SAT tests taken since March 2016.
  • If you are a Special Needs student you should NOT attend this trip. We recommend you contact Lydia Walegir in our Special Services office at 609-570-3517 to make arrangements for testing at another time. Doing so will ensure you have ample time to complete the test given your accommodations.
  • This test lets us know what level you are ready for and what courses we should place you into. The better you do on this test, the fewer courses you will need to take to graduate which will save you both time and money. You will be eligible to re-test one time for a fee of $25. Please take it seriously, concentrate, and try your best!
  • You will also be meeting with an advisor to determine your courses for the fall. This may be the same day of testing or another day that will be set up with your guidance department at your high school.
  • It does not hurt to apply for financial aid even if you do not think you are eligible! Please go to and fill out your FREE application if you have not done so already. This is very important to get in as soon as possible. Grants, scholarships, and loans are available to students who qualify.
  • Lunch will be provided for you! If you'd like you may bring money with you to purchase any additional items from the cafeteria.
  • If you or your parents have any questions, please contact us in the admissions office:
    • Chris Feihaut 609-570-3244

MCCC Honors Program

The MCCC Honors Program is an enriched college experience for highly motivated, intellectually curious, scholastically exceptional students. Honors students engage in qualitatively more challenging academic work than students in the standard curriculum.

Every honors course emphasizes critical thinking, analytical writing, effective speaking, interactive learning, collaborative learning, engagement with primary source materials, and information literacy. In addition, honors courses may include opportunities for independent research, service learning, or fieldwork.

The MCCC Honors Program is not a separate degree program or major; students matriculate in any program of study. Students graduating from MCCC with the honors designation will find themselves exceptionally well prepared for transfer to four-year colleges and universities and for success in their transfer institutions and career paths.
Students are evaluated based on a variety of factors: high school GPA, class rank, SAT scores, ACT scores, MCCC placement test scores, and level of interest. Advisors will help eligible students self-select into the Mercer Honors Program when they register for classes.
