  • Useful Links & Literature
  • Placement Tests

    Students are advised to send their transcripts and ACT scores or complete the ECC placement tests as early as possible to have the best selection of courses and course times. Get details»

    Who Needs It

    Students may not register without either:

    1. Appropriate ACT or SAT scores
    2. Appropriate scores on ECC placement tests
    3. Appropriate college transcripts

    Note: Students with a SAT math score of 540 or above, or SAT reading score of 450 or above, or a SAT writing score of 490 or above, do not need to take the math, reading or English essay placement test respectively. ACT and SAT MATH scores are valid for 2 years from the date the test is taken. All students must meet course prerequisites.

    How It Works

    Most placement tests are not timed.

    Placement Testing Workshops

    Workshops are held each month for students who need to refresh their knowledge of English, math or reading prior to placement testing. Get details»
