We want you to be successful in your college courses so your college placement test is an important first step. The course placement tests will assess your current skill levels in reading, writing, and math (or English language proficiency if you are an ESL student). Your placement test scores will determine which courses you may enroll in at EPCC.
There are test fees associated with some of our services while others are at no charge. Our fees are always the lowest possible to cover costs of providing the services. Test fees are subject to change without notice.
The Placement test scores are valid for 5 years, ESL test scores are valid for 2 years. The testing fees are valid for four months from date of payment. If you pay for a service and find that you will not be able to take your test, you must request a refund before the four month time period expires. Refund requests made after the four month expiration period will not be considered.
Refund requests are accepted at all campus testing centers and processed according to EPCC refund guidelines and timelines. It is best to be sure that you really need a test before you pay for it.
