Placement Tests

After a student has been accepted to Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C), placement testing is mandatory to determine the level of math and English courses approved for registration.  An ACT score of 21 for math and 18 for English may be substituted for testing.  ACT scores will be accepted for placement within two years of testing date.  Official scores must be submitted to the Enrollment Center.

Exception: Students who have credits in Math or English transferred from a previous college are not required to take Tri-C's assessment test.

Students are required to complete one to two hours of test preparation and turn in a completed placement test preparation test guide before taking the placement tests at an Assessment Center

Appointments are not necessary in the Assessment Center, however sufficient time is required to complete testing. 

Items to bring with you to testing:

  • Photo Identification
  • Tri-C Student Identification Number
