When is Placement Testing Offered?
Newly admitted students who are planning to register for Fall 2022 courses must complete the first MATH Placement test by June 1, 2022*. Further attempts (up to 5) can be taken after the deadline. Enrolled students who are preparing for future terms and require testing should complete placement tests by the fifth week of the term. This will allow ample time for a student to review placement scores with an advisor and to make decisions prior to registration.
*Portland-Metro students should take the placement test as soon as possible.
How long do the Placement Tests take?
Students are given 2 hours to complete the ALEKS math placement test. Students usually take between 60-90 minutes. The A&P placement test takes about 15 minutes to complete. There is no writing placement test.
