Testing Center

Appointments are required for in-person accommodated, proctored, and commercial testing support. Testers and students must schedule an appointment in advance.

English Corequisite

If you received a letter, phone call, or text about updated placement into ENGL B1AL, you should register for ENGL B1AL. The ENGL B1AL course includes the transfer-level English course, ENGL B1A, along with a corequisite support class. In other words, registering for ENGL B1AL provides another way to register for and complete ENGL B1A.
