Your success as a college student depends, to a large degree, on enrolling in courses that match your abilities and skills. Assessment includes testing, as well as other measures, and is intended to assist you in determining the best fit between your skills and class requirements. In order to ensure proper course selection, all new students
MUST take the English and Math assessment exams, unless you qualify for an exemption (please see link on right side menu).

To take one or more of these exams please contact the Assessment office at 619.388.3023 to schedule an appointment.  You must complete the New Student Online Orientation FIRST and show proof of completion before signing up.

For more information on the Assessment Tests, requirements for Exemptions (not required to take the tests), or Understanding the Test Results, please select the appropriate sub-folders on the right side menu.
