Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

Assessment Handout

The English, ESL and math placement exams assist students with identifying what level of courses to enroll in at the college.  First-time students and students who plan to take an English, ESL or math course for the first time are required to take the placement exams.  Students whose first language is not English and/or that have difficulty communicating or reading in English should take the English as a Second Language Exam.  The math exam is used to place students into Accounting 1A, Business 14A, Chemistry 1A and Chemistry 22 and Statistic 50 courses.  For the exams not mentioned please contact the department directly (Languages, Music or other). Special exam formats are available for students with a verified disability.  Click on the links for the right for additional testing information:  First-Time Student Requirements, What to Bring, How to Prepare, Test Exemptions , Test Result Information and Frequently Asked Questions
