Testing Resources

NOTICE: The Testing Center will be closed for in-person tests from January 25 to January 27, 2023

Our Testing Guide will give you an overview of all the testing services we offer, as well as information on fees, the different placement exams offered, how to take them, and how to prepare for them. 

College Success offers practice tests for writing and math to help you prepare for your placement exam. EdReady allows you to assess your readiness for college math and/or writing and provides you with a personalized study path.


Placement Testing

Typically, first-year placement in math and writing courses is determined by your ACT or SAT scores. If you don't have those scores, you may take a placement exam instead. Contact your Admissions Representative with your test scores, grades, in-progress schedule, or Dual credit/AP courses to determine which exam you will need to take. The Writing and Math departments offer more detailed information on placement exams and course requirements. Once you know which placement exam(s) to take (College Success and/or ALEKS PPL), use the forms below to register.
