NMJC Placement Testing

NMJC placement testing is known as Next Generation. Next Generation is given Monday- Thursday 8am to 5pm, Friday 8am to 3pm, and Saturday 10am to 12pm. This placement test is used to help counselors place you in classes that match your skill level to give you the best opportunity for success. Please see the Help Desk in the Ben Alexander Building first to receive a form to take an Next Generation test.

You will need to bring a Government Issued ID and a Placement Form from the help desk.

There is no fee the first time you take Next Generation unless you are taking it for another institution besides New Mexico Junior College. If you need to retake a section of the test there is a fee of $5.00. If you need to retake the whole test the fee is $15.00. These fees are paid at the cashiers office on the NMJC Campus located in the Ben Alexander building.

Next Generation is not a timed test, but please plan to be here for up to 2 hours.

There is a calculator embedded in Next Generation. Please do not bring a calculator with you. There are no cell phones or electronics allowed in the testing center. Scrap paper and pencil are provided by the Testing Center. Earplugs are available for students.

Retakes must wait for a minimum of 14 days between attempts.
