Step 3: Placement

Placement Test Requirements

New students are required to take a placement test to evaluate reading, writing, and math skills and to determine the appropriate math and English course placements. Possible exemptions to taking the test are recent proof of college-level English and math with a grade of 2.0 or better, other recent placement test scores submitted via the Placement Reciprocity form, and other options.

Contact the Testing and Assessment Office at your campus or college website for a complete list of exemptions, current tests, fees, guidelines, and additional information.
