Monday - Friday

Whether or not you are required to take the placement exams depends on which College you are going into, what your academic background is, and what you chose for your intended program of study. Even if you have taken Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate tests in these subjects, you still need to take the placement exams if your College requires them. Please complete your placement testing at least two weeks prior to your New Student Registration date.
