As of now Brookdale is working on the next steps for placement testing. In lieu of the Accuplacer, Brookdale will be using multiple factors from students' academic history to determine initial placement. Assessments being used for this include: High School transcript, PSAT, SAT, ACT, and NJSLA scores. This information will be gathered from your guidance counselor. Early Bird will be held later this year to account for gathering the above information. Students will be contacted by the admission department when they are ready to move forward.
