Placement Test Checklist - Placement Testing Center
Submit an application to Ohlone College.
Decide if it is necessary for you to take a placement test.
Exemption from Taking the Placement Tests - You are not required to take the placement tests if any of the following apply to you:
Special Note: Applicants to the Registered Nursing, Physical Therapy Assistant, and Respiratory Therapy programs have specific testing requirements. Please refer to those program websites for more information.
Determine when you can take the tests and make a reservation.
Plan to take the test at the earliest possible date. Test sessions closer to the beginning of the term are usually more crowded and availability is limited to the Placement Testing Center open hours and 29 computer stations.
Important! Students must reserve their space for the placement tests in advance. Students who missed three reservations without cancellation will be blocked from making any further appointments for the remainder of the semester.
Special note: Assistance is available to students who have a disability or require special accommodations. Please notify the Placement Testing Center staff at (510) 659-6126.
Review the study guides.
Students are highly encouraged to review the study guides, sample practice tests, and other helpful online resources before taking the test. The practice tests contain multiple-choice questions that are similar to those on the test. Students tend to feel more comfortable and do well when they know what to expect on the test.
