Placement Tests

After a student is 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 or more for math and a score of 18 or more for English may be substituted for testing, or SAT scores of 520 or more for math and 430 or more for English.  ACT or SAT 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 test preparation classes or complete and turn in completed Math and English Preparation Guides before taking the placement tests, for more information visit the Placement Testing page

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