50th Anniversary
Placement Testing

To ensure your success and correct course placement, you must have test scores on file before registering for classes. Placement testing is offered in our Testing Centers on a walk-in basis.

  • On our Texas Township Campus, visit Room 2210 or call 269.488.4235.
  • At the Arcadia Commons or Bronson Healthy Living Campuses, visit Room 211 in Anna Whitten Hall or call 269.373.7836 for more information.

See information about testing center hours and locations.

Bring a photo ID to either testing center to start placement testing.

All placement tests are untimed computerized tests which will help evaluate your current skill levels in mathematics, reading and writing. The format will vary depending on the test you are given. Allow three hours for completion.

Placement tests are important for determining the class level at which you start your college career. By taking the test seriously, you may be able to place in higher level courses, saving time and money.
