Placement Testing

We want you to get the highest score possible on your placement test. The better your score, the fewer classes you need to take and the sooner you can graduate. A better placement test score can save you time and money - and help you get to your next phase.

Placement tests in Reading, Writing and Math are required for students who do not have college-ready ACT/SAT scores or official transcripts with qualifying college credit. The Science Placement Test is required only for students who will take college-level Biology, Chemistry or Physics.

COLLEGE CREDIT PLUS/DUAL CREDIT STUDENTS: Consult your school counselor or Columbus State advisor assigned to your school about placement testing for Columbus State courses.
