When Should One Take the Placement Test? 

The placement test is taken after admission to the College but prior to course registration.  We recommend that you take it as soon as possible so your placement information and course recommendations will be available for advisement.​ 

What Subjects are on the Placement Test?

Students are tested in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics: pre-algebra and elementary algebra.​

May I Be Exempt ​from Taking the Placement Test?

​​​Students who have achieved the required test​ scores on the SAT®, ACT Composite, or PARCC may qualify for an exemption from portions of the College Placement Test. Students should supply the Office of Admissions with a copy of qualifying exemption scores.
