Placement Tests

Wagner 270 testing

General Assessment Information:
The UC Assessment Center offers entry-level computerized placement testing in math, writing skills, and reading on a walk-in basis from 8:15 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday in Wagner Hall 270. No appointment is required and tests are not timed. Examinees should allow at least one hour for each test. Placement tests can be taken twice per semester.

We are closed for University Holidays and for occasional maintenance/meetings (so please call to ensure we'll be open for your exam seating).  If you are interested in remote placement testing, please see our Remote Testing Information Sheet (PDF).

More Assessment Information: Upon entering University College, many students will be required to take placement tests (for most, we use a program called COMPASS), so we can assess the appropriate level of course they should be enrolled in. Typically, students are required to take these tests if their ACT/SAT subscores in a particular area do not qualify them for either a college-level course or the level of course they desire to get into. Please use the resources below to review the material before taking any of the placement tests at our Assessment Center.
