TASC assesses five subjects: Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. More information about the test, as well as a free practice test, can be found here: www.tasctest.com

 

Before testing, all candidates must register, pay and schedule a test. Please be aware, registration and payment for the TASC can take up to 40 minutes; please schedule accordingly to allow yourself time to complete the necessary test registration paperwork. 

Please follow the steps listed below:

 

Step # 1: Pre-approval for the TASC test:

All candidates must be pre-approved by CCC testing staff to take the TASC PRIOR to payment and scheduling.

Pre-approval requires presenting TWO current forms of identification:

  1. REQUIRED (no exceptions): Social Security card, Social Insurance card, Taxpayer ID card, or Deferred Action Card

  2. ONE PRIMARY current form of photo identification:
    • Current NJ Driver's License or Photo ID issued by NJ DMV
    • State/County Issued Identification Card
    • Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) Documents
    • Military Identification
    • Alien Registration Card
    • Valid Passport (US)
    • Foreign Passport with accompanying letter from Embassy on Embassy Letterhead, written in English, verifying authenticity of the Passport, with official's signature and contact information

  3. ONE SECONDARY current form of identification is required in addition to 1 & 2 above only if NJ address is not listed on primary ID:
    • Utility bill, bank statement, etc. documenting delivery to a NJ address
    • Social Security verification letter


Eligibility for the Test:
The candidate must be a New Jersey resident and no longer in secondary school. Candidates who are 16 or 17 years of age must have a "Certificate of Consent to Participate" signed by a parent or guardian. The form is available at the Testing Center.

 

Step #2 Paying and Scheduling for the Test:

  • After CCC staff review ID docs, candidate receives a fee payment form to submit to the Business Office.
  • Payment in full is made at the Business Office and candidate receives a signed payment receipt; only cash or money orders made out to Camden County College will be accepted.
  • Candidate returns to Test Center with payment receipt to schedule the TASC and finalize registration documents.

Hours for Pre-Approval, Registering and Scheduling a Test:

Wednesday walk-in hours 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Camden City Campus, CTC 211A
Thursday walk-in hours 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Blackwood Campus, LRC 200 (Testing Center)

 

TASC Testing Fees:

Full Battery of Tests: $92 non-refundable fee
Re-Examination Fee: $10 per test non-refundable fee for first two retests in each respective subject; $20.40 non-refundable fee for subsequent retests.

 

IMPORTANT:

Rescheduling: Candidates who fail to show for the test and do not notify the testing facility at least 72 hours in advance of the scheduled test date will be required to pay the site fee again. Seating is limited and failure to notify the Testing Center in a timely manner creates a lost testing opportunity for others. There are NO REFUNDS for TASC testing; candidates are permitted to reschedule a TASC test 3 times in a calendar year. After the third rescheduled test, candidates must repay the entire test fee in full.


The Test: On the day of the test, candidates must report to the Camden City Campus, Camden Technology Center, room 203 by 10 a.m. Without exception, NO late arrivals will be admitted since this causes a disturbance to other test takers. The test is 7 hours and 25 minutes long plus instructions and is administered over a two day period on a Wednesday and Thursday. No walk-ins are allowed on the test date.


Passing Score: Candidates must achieve a 500* on each respective section to pass the TASC. * A score of 500 and a 2 on the essay is required to pass the Writing section.
