Course Placement Tests

Course Placement Testing

You need to be referred to test by a TCC employee (for example: Academic Advisor, Admissions or Enrollment staff). Some students receive email referrals to test.
Only admitted students with a TCC Student ID number and a referral are allowed to take the placement test(s). You are required to present a photo ID (i.e. driver's license, TCC student ID card) in order to test; no exceptions.

Testing in person is available on a walk-in basis on all four campuses.
