Options for Placement
Before registering for classes, new students need to be placed at the English and math level that works best for you. There are three ways that SPSCC helps you get placed at the right level: document review, Guided Self Placement, and testing.
Plan to use just one method for each English and math placement.
The best and simplest way to get placed at the right level is to let us assess work you’ve already done. Our assessment team can determine your placement by reviewing your recent high school or college transcripts, or recent test scores such as SAT, ACT, AP, IB, CI or SBA.
Read below for more detailed information about the types of documents we can accept for placement. We can use unofficial copies to place you!
To submit documents for placement review, please fill out and attach your documents to the Placement Request Form. If you have not applied to SPSCC and activated your student accounts, follow the Steps to Enroll first. Please allow up to five business days for processing. You will receive a message in your Compass account once placement is determined.
