3 Provide Placement Information
If you are enrolling in credit classes, you are required to provide math and writing placement information.
There are several ways to provide placement information:
Option 1 - Transfer Credit
If you have completed college writing and/or math courses or you may choose to submit unofficial transcripts for placement as long as the classes you intend to take do not have course prerequisites.
Option 2 - Recent placement test scores
If you have completed a placement test at another institution within the last 2 years, provide test scores and placement guidelines to Admissions & Records. (takes 3 business days)
Option 3 - Degree earned
The placement test requirement will be satisfied if you have earned an associate's degree or higher.
Option 4 - Take the placement test at COCC
Sign up to take the placement test.
We will only accept prior college degree, coursework, and placement test scores from regionally accredited colleges.
You must provide placement information for both math and writing. If you can only provide placement information for one, you must take the placement test for the other.
Placement Test Exceptions
You may not need to take the placement test if you plan to take only the following courses:
- HD 110 (Career Planning )
- HD 190 (Latino Leadership)
- Music Performance
- HHP Activity
- Studio art
- Computer Skills (CIS below 100-level)

Official transcripts are still required to meet degree requirements, course or program prerequisites, and for advising.
