Placement Tests at Local High Schools for Fall 2017 Admission to Ohlone College - Freshman Days

Early Registration Process for Seniors.

The Ohlone College English and math placement tests cover reading comprehension, sentence skills, and math. The placement tests are computerized and not timed. Test results will determine which courses you are eligible to enroll. You do not want to be placed into a course that is too low, so take the placement tests seriously.

The placement tests are not pass-fail tests and do not exclude you from admission to Ohlone College. However, doing your best will save you time and money. Study guides and sample questions are available on our website.

A valid photo ID and an Ohlone Student ID Number are required for taking the tests. No calculators, dictionaries, study guides, or cell phones are allowed during testing. Your test results will be available immediately after you complete the test.

For further questions regarding placement testing, please contact the Placement Testing Center at (510) 659-6126 or

Ohlone College will accept placement test results from other community colleges. Students who have completed the placement tests at other community colleges shouldshould bring a copy of their results with them to their Freshman Days orientation.
