Placement Testing

Assessment is one of the critical steps to help students start on a successful pathway in college. It is important that students take the classes for which they are academically prepared. (Placement tests are designed to help determine the appropriate levels of courses that students need to take in mathematics, English, or English as a Second Language (ESL)).

Student Success and Assessment Services Centers offer both appointment and drop-in scheduling options for placement testing at the Santa Rosa and Petaluma campuses. To make an appointment go online to the SRJC Student Portal and login, then go to Quick Links. We recommend you arrive early as latercomers will not be admitted after the test begins and seating is limited. Please, check the Placement Testing Schedule for dates, times, room locations and scheduling options. Also, there are study guides online and you can pick one up at the Student Success and Assessment Services Centers.

Your success in college is very important to everyone at Santa Rosa Junior College. Placement tests will help determine the right place for you to begin your studies at SRJC. You should take the placement tests early in your college career to give you and your counselor valuable information about your skills in English, and math, so you may develop the best plan for achieving your educational goals.

Who should take the placement tests?
All new college students are encouraged to take the placement tests before seeing a counselor. The results will be helpful in determining the appropriate level classes in many disciplines.

You must take the appropriate test if you plan to register in an English, math, or English as a Second Language course.

What does my placement score mean?
The test results indicate the highest level in which you can register. The level of English and math that you must complete depends on your educational goal. Students planning to transfer to a university or four year college to earn a bachelor's degree will have to complete higher level English and math classes.
