STUDENT SUCCESS & SUPPORT
PROGRAM Assessment & Testing
The Assessment Center provides placement testing services to all new matriculating, continuing, and returning students. Testing is offered on an appointment basis. View the calendar below for test offerings. Scroll below the calendar to make an appointment and to see additional information.
Follow the link to make an appointment.
When all test sessions appointments are filled, students will no longer be able to make appointments.
An "invalid id" message will display for most students. The reason for this is because new student information is not yet loaded into the database. Please call the office or appear in person to make an appointment.
Students with appointments must arrive 30 minutes before their scheduled appointment to be considered on time. Failure to be on time may result in your appointment being cancelled.
- For appointment tests, students must have an appointment in the system
- Bring government issued identification (State ID, Drivers License, Passport)
- Have LAHC student identification number
- Make sure to arrive at least 30 minutes before the test starts
- Any accommodations must be arranged in advanced with SPS
- Test session last an average of 3 hours
If you do not have an appointment, you may attempt to take the assessment tests as a "walk-in". You must arrive 1 hour before a test starts to check availability. There is no guarantee you will be able to take the assessment tests as a walk-in.
