Testing and Orientation

Triton's new student orientation program, Destination Success, offers opportunities for new students to learn about degree and certificate programs, student services, college facilities, strategies for college success and much more in a small group setting. Students may attend orientation on campus or complete the orientation online.

Triton College expects all students to possess or acquire the basic reading, writing, and mathematics skills necessary for successful completion of college-level work. All entering students are required to take institutional placement tests, preferably prior to attending orientation, so they can be placed in courses at the appropriate level. Placement testing lasts approximately two hours and is administered in Triton's Educational Testing Center in the lower level of the A Building.
