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 do I need to do prior to assessment or placement?

Students must apply for admission prior to submitting documentation. Get started today!

How do I provide information for my placement?

Clark College utilizes multiple measures to determine placement. After determining what method you would like to use, go to Clark Students and choose MyClark@Clark to self-report your United States High School GPA (grade point average) for English placement, or you may email the information to Thank you for choosing Clark College!
