College Placement Testing

The Admissions Office determines what placement tests are required for each student.  Any required College Placement Test (CPT) in reading comprehension, sentence skills and math must be completed prior to registering for classes.  It is important that students try to take the CPT as soon as they are admitted. Review your testing options and schedule the required testing below. You will need your letter from the Admissions Office in order to complete the online scheduling process.

**Please be advised, placement testing is also available off-site.

About the Placement Test

  • The placement test is a computerized test given to assess core college readiness in reading comprehension, sentence skills and math
  • This is not a timed test and requires only the ability to use a keyboard and a mouse
  • The test is free for students accepted for enrollment into the college
  • It is not a pass/fail test but is rather a test of skill acquisition (level)
  • Your scores are used in planning the most appropriate first-semester schedule of coursework for you
  • CLS 090, ENG 099, ENG 100, Math 090, Math 098 are required if students place into them through the CPT

Please Note:

  • Photo ID is required at time of testing
  • You must know your social security number
  • Plan approximately two hours to complete the entire test (reading comprehension, sentence skills and math)
  • No outside resources are permitted (i.e., calculators, dictionaries)
  • Students who require accommodations must present documentation such as an IEP, 504 plan or diagnosis from an appropriate medical professional  in advance through the Accommodation Services Office
