Returning Student - Placement Test

6 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 - Course Completion
If you have completed college writing and/or math courses at COCC, you may be exempt from placement. If you have completed writing and/or math courses from another institution or you have a college degree, learn more about transferring credits and meeting placement requirements.

Option 2 - Recent placement
If you have completed placement at another institution within the last 2 years, provide results and placement guidelines to Admissions & Records. (takes 3 business days)

Option 3 – Take the Placement Assessment

Important details:

  • 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 assessment for the other.
