Mustang Card — ID Services
Your Mustang Card is your official student photo identification while on campus. Students receiving a financial aid refund must activate their Mustang Card in order to choose their refund preference. Photos can be taken at Enrollment Services in College Hall at Central Campus or at Enrollment Services in South Hall at West Campus.
If you cannot come to campus, you may apply for a Mustang card using this pdf: Mustang ID card verification. Please follow the instructions carefully.
Once students have their photo taken, a Mustang Card will arrive at the address on record with the College. Please be sure to verify your mailing address with Enrollment Services. The College will begin having cards mailed to students approximately two weeks prior to the start of the semester once we have a photo on file.
Shortly after you apply to the College, you must determine if you have college-level skills. You can do this in several ways: you can submit SAT score reports, submit AP test scores, submit another college's transcripts, complete course prerequisites, or take the College's placement test. Placement tests measure entry-level skills in reading comprehension, writing ability, mathematical ability, and, for some students, anatomy and physiology (biology) knowledge. Based on test results, students are placed into coursework which will allow them the best chance of success.
Placement tests can be taken at the Montgomery County Community College locations listed below as well as other testing locations. Please contact a testing center below to find a location near you.
Central Campus in Blue Bell
Room 264 (inside the Library)
West Campus in Pottstown
Room 163 (inside the Library)
If you are taking all 3 Placement Tests, please allow at least 2 hours to complete testing.
Placement Testing Exemptions
To be exempt from a placement test, you must provide a score report, a high school transcript, and/or a college transcript for evaluation at the time of or before testing. An unofficial transcript or score report can be used for evaluation of exemptions.
Acceptable score reports include: ACT, AP, CLEP, PSAT, PSSA, SAT, and ACCUPLACER score reports from other institutions. These reports are valid for five years. College transfer credits do not expire, with the exception of math and science credits which expire in ten years.
