Assessment & Placement at Southwestern College is changing!

Students who are registering for Summer and Fall 2019 terms do not need to take an assessment test. These students will be placed using a new process. We will post more specific steps for incoming students in March or April 2019. Please be patient with us while we get our processes in place. More information can be found below.

The Assessment and Prerequisites Services Center provides timely and thorough assessment of student skill levels in English, reading and mathematics. We also work with students to use assessments and coursework from other institutions to see if they can be used to meet course and program prerequisites at Southwestern College. More information about requisites, prerequisite services and using external assessment results can be found on the Prerequisites page of this website.

In the Assessment Center, a highly qualified and trained staff ensures a secure yet relaxed testing environment aimed at minimizing student anxiety.

Individualized accommodations are available to meet the needs of students with disabilities - contact Disability Support Services at (619) 482-6512 or TTY 619-492-6470.

Southwestern College offers assessment services to all students to improve their chances of success.
