Placement testing at SFCC consists of two components: math and English. At the initial appointment, students will
complete the untimed, computer-based COMPASS reading and writing proficiency assessments as well as their first
attempt at our MyMath placement test.
The majority of the tests are untimed. Plan to spend approximately 3 hours.
You will also be enrolled in a 16-week online MyMath Test program. Students have the option of doing unlimited
practice tests at home and ONE chance to re-test at the Testing Center during the 16-weeks.
(These appointments are NOT for Running Start students. Please select the Running Start tab
for more information.)
If you are unable to attend your scheduled testing appointment, you must CANCEL 24
HOURS PRIOR to your appointment or you may be charged a $30
NON-REFUNDABLE processing fee.
