Academic Advising & Placement

Academic Advising & Placement

Helping students achieve their educational dreams with quality academic skills assessment!

We want you to be successful in your college courses so your college placement test is an important first step for you. The course placement tests will assess your current skill levels in reading, writing, and math. Once you know where you are now, then you can enroll in the right courses to build on your current skills. Your placement test scores will determine which courses you may enroll in at TSTC. You must complete placement testing before registering for classes.

If you are a returning or transfer student, check with your Success Coach about whether or not you need to take (or retake) one or more parts of the placement test.

Before you take the placement test, take time to refresh your reading, writing, and math skills so that you can do your very best on your test.
