Placement Testing

Placement testing assesses your readiness for college-level courses.

There are many ways to place directly into college-level courses without testing. Please review the eligibility requirements below. If you meet any of the outlined criteria, your next step is to call or email the Admissions office to schedule an appointment to register for classes. Have your transcripts or test scores sent or available for your appointment.

If you are not eligible for direct placement, you will take the placement test in English and/or Math to determine your placement as follows:

  1. Review eligibility for taking college-level classes. Many students are eligible to take classes based on high school grade point average or standardized test scores (SAT, ACT).
  2. Complete your enrollment application at least 48 hours prior to testing. Set up your student account.
  3. Call the Admissions office at 410-386-8430 for information about taking the placement tests.
