STEP 2: COMPLETE THE ONLINE PLACEMENT ASSESSMENTS

All new and transferring full-time and part-time students who have not accumulated 30 quarter credits are required to take a Placement Assessment test that assesses skills in reading, English, and mathematics, prior to pre-registration. We are currently providing these tests online after the Placement Intake Form has been completed.

Placement Assessments must be taken before registration for classes can occur.

We need to ask a few questions to create a profile for you as a student.  When your placement results are complete they will be placed with your profile and sent on to your advisor along with course recommendations.

MATH PLACEMENT:

This quick diagnostic will give us an idea of which math class is a good fit for you to be challenged and successful.
You will be asked for the following
  • Student ID Number (please use your cell phone number at this time)
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Select Your Instructor (Please select new student)
  • Access Password - bison 

WRITING PLACEMENT:

In this section, you will provide a writing sample based on the prompt given.  Your writing will be evaluated in order to place you in the best English course.

STEP 3: REQUEST YOUR DIGITAL ACCOUNTS
