The Testing Center offers placement testing, test proctoring services, and selected standardized testing for individuals and groups for selective program admission and certification. Throughout the year, the college offers placement testing in the areas of math, reading, and writing; counselors use the results to assist students in determining appropriate courses for their academic career. Test proctoring is offered for students enrolled in online classes or those taking a make-up exam.
Additionally, students may earn alternate credit through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Dantes Subject Standardized Tests (DSST), proficiency credit, or portfolio development. The CLEP allows students to earn up to 30 hours of credit in the five general areas of English; humanities and fine arts; mathematics; physical and life science; and social and behavioral science/history. The DSST program gives students the opportunity to receive proficiency credit for learning acquired outside the traditional college classroom. Proficiency credit and portfolio development allow students to pursue the option of earning credit or placement for their learning experiences. Additional information may be found under the section, Acceptance of Academic credit.
WorkKeys is the group of assessments used to measure the skills needed to obtain the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC).
