Appointment Scheduling Program
Triton College Testing Center has begun a new process for scheduling CLEP, DSST, Workkeys, Proctor services and online and make-up exams. Students must register online for their testing appointments instead of making appointments by phone or in person. Students must schedule their exam at least 24 hours in advance for the time they want to begin their test. The new online scheduling system will allow students to schedule their own appointments and make changes online; the system is available 24 hours a day for your convenience.

Placement Testing
New Students to Triton College, regardless of educational intent are required to take the college’s placement test. The placement test consists of math, reading, and writing skills. Students scoring in the College Readiness range must enroll in the appropriate math, reading, and writing courses. Scores are valid for two years. Students are allowed one retest each year. Students may be waived from the placement if they successfully completed college courses in English and math or have met required scores for ACT.

The COMPASS Placement test will be down on the following Saturdays: July 16th and July 23rd. Please plan accordingly. Sorry for the inconvenience.
