Testing & Assessment Center

Placement Testing

The Testing Center is on the ground floor of the Harold L. Drimmer Library/Learning Resource Center.

The placement examination is an important first step in your plan for success at Westchester Community College. The placement tests will assess your current skill levels in reading, writing, and mathematics. The College’s mandatory assessment and placement policy requires students to register for courses as determined by the placement exams scores.

“Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.”*

*As reported by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the basketball legend, when asked by Jon Saraceno, “What is the best advice you ever received from your college coach, the late John Wooden?”

Before you take the placement exam, take time to review your reading, writing, and math skills so that you can do your very best. Explore the Testing & Assessment Center website to get additional information.
