Placement Testing

Placement Test

If you are a degree-seeking student who has not submitted valid test scores, or who has submitted scores (but are invalid or below benchmarks) you must take a Placement Test.

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

Visit the Testing Center website to ask about taking a placement test.

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 you do not place the first time, a second test will be given for free. If you do not place after the 2nd time, we will refer you 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 Testing Center at the Leestown Campus will offer Placement Testing for non-KCTCS/BCTC students. A fee will apply.
