Welcome to the SLCC Placement Process!

The Placement Process helps us get to know you better. After you take your math and English survey, we’ll choose classes that fit you best. These classes complete your Composition (EN—English/ESL) and Quantitative Literacy/Quantitative Studies (QL/QS—Math) Core Skills requirements. Learn more about who should complete the placement process and what to expect below.

Do you have a testing hold? Completing the placement process at any SLCC testing center removes testing holds and allows you to enroll in required math and English classes.

Do any of the following describe you? 

  • Your ACT or SAT math scores have expired. ACT math scores expire after 18 months, SAT math scores expire after 1 year. (English and Reading scores for both exams are good forever.)
  • You are an ESL student.
  • You have a GED.
  • You still need to complete your Composition and Quantitative Literacy requirements.

If so, you’ll need to take a placement survey at one of our SLCC testing centers before enrolling in math and English courses.

Prepare for the SLCC Placement Process

 

After the survey, you will have a say in your final math and English course choice. We want you to choose what feels best, so we’ve created short videos to familiarize you with our offerings. Anticipate which class you need by following links to ESL, English or Math pathways below. 

Are you an English Language Learner or an ESL student? Our ESL classes might be for you. They are taught by instructors with special language experience and offer learning environments specific to ELLs’ aptitudes and needs.

If you live more than one hour away from any of our campuses, you may qualify to take the placement process from a remote proctor. The test must be taken in a controlled, proctored setting, with a lockdown browser.
