Placement Tests (COMPASS)

Are placement tests required?

You may be required to participate in the placement process prior to enrolling in classes under the following circumstances:

  • If you are degree- or certificate-seeking, you will be required to take the placement test, with the exception of a few vocational certificate programs that do not require math and/or English.
  • If you wish to enroll in a math or English course at JCCC, regardless of whether you plan to seek a degree or certificate, you must take the placement test.

    Please check your Personal Admission Plan for any required tests.

Substitutions for the Placement Tests

  • If you have successfully completed college courses equivalent to our math and English courses, you may not need to take a placement test.
  • Qualifying ACT may exempt you from taking a placement test.

    Please check your Personal Admission Plan for any required tests.
