Placement Test

In accordance with Kentucky State Legislature, degree-seeking students who have not submitted valid test scores, or who have submitted scores (but are invalid or below benchmarks) must take a Placement Test.

The purpose of this exam is to place students in the developmental/transitional or collegiate-level course appropriate for their skills. The Placement Test has two 20 minute timed sections in Verbal and Quantitative.

Who can take the Placement Test?

All BCTC Students: The first test is free, any time after that a $20 fee is to be paid. If a student does not place the first time, a second test will be given for free. If the student does not place after the 2nd time, we will refer the student to tutoring.

KCTCS Students: Due to limited testing space, any student testing for another KCTCS college outside of BCTC may test one time free if testing accommodations are available.

Non-KCTCS/BCTC Students: The Assessment Center at the Leestown Campus will offer Placement Testing for non-KCTCS/BCTC students. A $30 fee will apply.
