Testing & Placement FAQs

The Testing Centers on our three campuses provide proctoring services for students attending other institutions. There is a $25.00 fee for each exam proctored at a Testing Center.

The right developmental math class depends on your academic goals so it's important to work with an advisor to choose the right class. There is a developmental math option for students pursuing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) areas, and an option for students pursuing non-STEM areas of study. MAT 055 leads to the college-level math needed for most Associate of Science degrees. MAT 050 leads to the college-level math needed for most Associate of Arts and Associate of Applied Science degrees. Learn more about these math classes.
