Placement Testing Services


Students who will be full-time, who will be pursuing a degree or certificate program or receiving financial aid must complete placement tests prior to registration. The placement test determines your entry levels for reading, writing and math. If you have prior college work or have taken a placement test at another college or have recent ACT or SAT scores, check with Educational Support Programs. The placement test is given in Stensland Hall between the hours of 8:15 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday on a walk-in basis and takes approximately 2 hours to complete. At the end of your testing session, you will receive a copy of your test results. Your advisor or a counselor will discuss the results and assist you to select classes based on your placement. Note: High scores may allow you to 'test out' of some course work.

Placement tests are scheduled by appointment through the local offices for the Curry campuses in Brookings, Gold Beach and Port Orford.
