The assessment exams, offered in English, ESL, and Math, will provide us current information about your abilities, and skills in the subject. The results of the exams are used to help you and your Counselor in identifying the appropriate level of English, ESL, Math and Chemistry courses that you should enroll in at PCC.

If you are a first-time college student or are planning on taking Math, English or ESL for the first time, then you'll need to take the assessments exams. Exams are administered year-round, but you should take them well before your registration date. Our classes fill up quickly, so make sure you're prepared for your registration date by taking the Assessment exam today!

The assessment exams are designed for initial placement in a course sequence for English, ESL and Math courses. Once you are enrolled in the course, the professor’s evaluation and grade will determine whether or not you advance to the next level. You may not take the placement test to challenge or skip a course in a sequence.


Take Your Assessments Early!
