Degree-seeking students are required to take a placement test prior to registering for classes. The placement test identifies the student's skill levels in math, reading and writing. Students must have applied for admission to WWCC, and have a student identification number prior to taking the placement test. It is not a test that can be passed or failed. The "score" simply indicates the appropriate starting point for each student enrolling in core subjects.
The Walla Walla testing schedule is available on the website at www.wwcc.edu/testing or at the Student Development Center. Placement testing at the Clarkston Center is scheduled Tuesday evenings at 5:15 p.m. and Thursday mornings at 8:15 a.m.
Transfer students who submit official transcripts to the Office of Admissions and Records showing successful completion of college level math and English with a grade of 2.0 or above are waived from taking that portion of the placement test.
