Welcome to the SLCC Placement Process

The Placement Process helps us get to know you better. These classes complete your Composition (EN—English/ESL) and Quantitative Literacy/Quantitative Studies (QL/QS—Math) Core Skills requirements.

Each placement quiz has a 90-minute time limit that allows more time than you may need. The estimated time it should take you to complete the entire process is 30 minutes. Once you have completed your placement, your scores should be available in our system within 1 hour after you complete your test. However, during peak times you should allow up to 1-2 business days to register.

After the assessment, please speak with an advisor.
