Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

Assessment Handout

The Assessment Services Office provides English, ESL and math placement testing to assist students with identifying what level of courses to enroll in.  First-time students or students who plan to take an English, ESL or math course for the first time must take both the English or ESL and math exams.  For information on How to Prepare for the Exam, What to Bring, Exam Exemptions and other info click on the links to the right.

  • Plan to take the exam well in advance of your assigned registration date to avoid registration delays. 
  • Review Test Preparation information to do your best on the exam.  Choosing not to review could result in a delay with graduation and/or transfer due to having to take courses that do not count for credit towards your degree.  Prepare For Your Future Today!   
  • The math test is also used for Accounting 1A, Business 14A, Chemistry 1A, Chemistry 22 and Statistics 50 placement. 
  • 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.
