Please note: The online appointment system only schedules exams for a two week period. Our exams fill up quickly so if you do not see an available date and time check back each morning and new dates should become available. If you need a sooner time please view our online calendar, so you can arrange a time to walk-in to an exam and be placed on the waiting list. The waiting list is NOT a guaranteed time to test; only an arrangement to have the opportunity to test if there is room after all appointments have been seated. The Assessment Center starts the waiting list 20 minutes prior to the start of the exam. Please arrive at LEAST 15 minutes before the start time if you are trying to walk-in to an exam.
TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT:
All students assessing at our facility are required to provide
a valid Pierce College ID number; and
a government issued photo identification card (e.g., California driver's license, California ID card, passport, or military ID).
If you are still in high school or just graduated, a high school ID may be presented.
A second form of picture ID may be required in some cases. Be sure to bring two forms of ID with you.
Photocopies of IDs, passports, etc., will not be accepted under any circumstances.
We will not be able to assess you without proper ID. If you have lost your ID, please go to your nearest DMV office to obtain a temporary driver’s license or ID. We will gladly accept a DMV printout that includes a picture (with verifying information).
You cannot assess for a course that you are currently enrolled in. For example: if you are enrolled in a Mathematics class, you will not be eligible to retake the Mathematics assessment test. Same applies for English, ESL, and Chemistry.
If you completed an English, ESL, Math or Chemistry class, you do not qualify to reassess in each perspective discipline.
By clicking the agree button you are stating that you understand the above information and realize that we may exclude you from the placement exam if we determine that you have signed up for the wrong exam or have signed up to take the exam for use at another college.
