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.  Plan to take the exam well in advance of your assigned registration date.  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.  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.  Special exam formats are available for students with a verified disability.  Veterans and Active Duty Military can arrange to take the exam remotely in their area.  This service is not available for other students at this time.  The office does not proctor/administer tests or transfer results via email, fax or mail to other colleges or universities.  Additional testing information is available on the right of this website such as, Exam Exemptions, Test Results, Sample Tests and other information.  We look forward to your visit at the Assessment Services Office.
