Due to the COVID-19 closure, our office is closed and we are not administering any tests at this time.

Students may complete their English placement remotely by taking our English Directed Self Placement tool.(Please note, Basic and Transitional Studies Level Four and below and International Students with F-1 Visas are not eligible for the Directed Self Placement tool).

If you need to take a math placement test before our office is open, you may take the math placement test online through Seattle Central College. You must send all placement test scores to studentplacement@seattlecolleges.edu to be able to register for classes.


Instructions: If you took the IELTS test within the last 2 years, visit the Center for International Education program for more information about how to use your scores as placement.
