Assessment Program Description

The Assessment Office schedules and administers placement tests for new non-exempt students, continuing students who are eligible for re-assessment, and returning students who need to retake the placement test for course placement into English, Math, or ESL courses. The office also schedules in-person (and online) appointments for orientations and counseling.

You will lose your place in priority enrollment if you do not participate in orientation, assessment, and educational planning services.
