Placement Testing

Placement tests allow you and your advisor to determine if you are ready to take certain college-level courses. If your score reveals weak areas, you may be required to complete skills improvement courses before enrolling in college courses.

Some new students may need to take placement tests in English and Math unless you qualify for an exemption. Click here to see if you qualify for an exemption.
