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.

If you are a new student, you must complete placement testing before attending a New Student Orientation. If you are a returning or transfer student, check with your counselor or advisor about whether or not you need to take (or retake) one or more parts of the placement test.

Before you take the placement test, take time to refresh your reading, writing, and math skills so that you can do your very best on your test. You'll find lots of helpful information about the placement test on our website and through other EPCC resources available to help you make the most of your college studies.
