FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why do I need to take a placement test?

The purpose of placement examinations is to determine the individual's skill level and readiness. Results will be used to determine the need, if any, for developmental placement. Faculty advisors will also use the results in planning students' programs and classes.


What if I fail the placement test?

You can retake the exam, but you may have to pay a fee. 


What if I miss a test due to illness, death or an accident?

A student who will miss or has missed a regularly scheduled class test may be permitted to take an Out-of-Class test. The decision to allow the test is left to the instructor. 

Fee waivers are provided for students who missed a test due to jury duty, military duty, death of an immediate family member, college sponsored activity, hospitalization, illness, or religious, reasons. Documentation is required and must be presented at the Testing Center.
