Guided Placement

This webpage offers information for new students on our MC Guided Placement process. If you are faculty or a current student looking for information on academic testing, please visit Academic Testing.

MC Guided Placement is for all new students who need to complete, for the first time, assessments for course placements in English, ESL (English as a Second Language), Math and/or Chemistry.

Returning students or current students who need placements as part of their current academic sequence (i.e. math or chemistry), should meet with Counseling & Advising for guidance.  Follow the instructions on this webpage: Meet with a Counselor/Advisor.

If you need an accommodation related to your disability to complete the MC Guided Placement tasks, contact  Disability Support Services before completing any tasks.

We remain dedicated to helping students achieve their educational dreams through affordable means. Visit our page Paying For College for more information.
