Retake a Placement Test

Retake a Placement Test
Summary: When placement tests can be retaken
Students who have already taken the placement test and would like to take it again are allowed to re-take it once in a five-year period. The second placement test attempt must be at least two weeks after the first attempt. The exceptions are:
  • If you’re applying for a Competitive Allied Health program, you may take the test once each year during the competition period.
  • If you tested in high school, you may test again when applying to the College.
  • If you have approval by the chair of Developmental Studies, director of Student Advising and Support Services, or vice president of Student Services, you may retake the test.
