The Assessment Center provides placement testing services for prospective and current students at Orange Coast College. All new students planning to take 6 or more units, are required to complete a placement test at OCC, unless they have satisfied this requirement in another way. These exceptions are explained in detail on the Placement Test Exceptions page.
It is the mission of the Orange Coast College Assessment Center to provide students with knowledge of their interests and aptitudes to better enable them to formulate their educational goals. When a student knows their English and math skill levels, they will be properly placed, thus increasing their probability of academic success.
