Placement Testing

With placement testing, Carroll assesses your readiness for college-level courses. After testing, you will receive results from an adviser, and be directed to complete the Online Pre-Advising session.

The Online Pre-Advising session explains prerequisites, selecting courses, transferring and registering. Complete the online session and quiz, prepare a schedule, and then visit the Advising and Transfer Center (A102). An adviser will review your test results, your academic or transfer goals, and your academic plan before approving your registration or leading you through the online registration process.
