The Assessment Center provides placement testing services for prospective and current students at Orange Coast College. The college's matriculation plan requires that all students who plan on taking English, English as a Second Language, Math, six units or more and/or pursuing a certificate or degree must be evaluated.
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.
The Assessment Center is located on the first floor in Watson Hall in room 110. Watson Hall is located next to parking lot A on the campus map
