If you are a new student, you will probably need to take the placement test. The placement test includes sections on math, English, and computer skills. The placement test determines where you will start your coursework at PCC.  We offer a variety of classes to meet the needs of every student who enrolls. It is important that each student begins coursework where they will be most successful. The placement test can help us to determine which class will best meet your needs.

It is important to take this test very seriously and to do your best. Your starting point will affect your graduation date, so take some time to explore the information about the placement test.
