Carl Albert State College libraries and the Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) have partnered to provide ACCUPLACER prep resources to CASC students.
EOC Coordinator Kelly Kellogg explained, “ACCUPLACER is the test now utilized at CASC for students who do not obtain the ACT scores required to enroll in college level courses. These prep resources will hopefully enable students to save money and time by testing at the appropriate level to avoid remediation.” Kellogg went on to say, “EOC is one of the federally funded TRIO programs housed at the CASC campuses, and we are pleased to work closely with the College to provide free study resources.”
Director of CASC libraries Terri Carroll stated, “EOC has purchased prep resources that can be checked out through the CASC libraries in Poteau and Sallisaw. To access these resources, a student must first visit an EOC advisor at one of our campuses. The EOC advisors will provide valuable information to students regarding financial aid, financial literacy and career/major exploration. In order to check out the prep resources, a student will received a ‘Golden Ticket’ from the EOC advisor to present at the library.”
Regarding the ACCUPLACER test, Kellogg shared, “The test is available for math, reading and writing. The test is taken on a computer and is not timed. The test is free the first time a student takes it, and no appointment is necessary. Students are required to present a CASC ID and a valid photo ID upon arrival for testing. The testing sites are at the Joe E. White Library in Poteau and the Learning Resource Center at the Sallisaw campus. Testing hours are Monday – Thursday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.”
