Assessment & Placement

Placement check-in services for main campus are located in the Enrollment Services office, Gaiser Hall 128.

GED testing is now being offered at our Economic and Community Development office at Clark College at Columbia Tech Center, Room 143, 18700 SE Mill Plain Blvd, Vancouver, WA.  Visit www.ged.com to sign up for testing.

What is Placement?

The goal of placement is to assess skills to ensure students are able to successfully engage with course content, and have the best chances at passing the course.

Many courses at Clark College have placement prerequisites for reading and mathematics ability. The courses that students place into determine how they progress through their program of study and how long their degree will take. We have a variety of ways to assess skills — one method doesn’t work for all!

What to do prior to assessment or placement?

Students must apply for admission and pay the $25.00 fee prior to accessing assessment services. Official or unofficial documentation of the following may be provided to the Assessment Center in Enrollment Services in Gaiser Hall, Room 128.
