The Assessment Center provides testing and proctoring services for GTCC as well as other schools and universities. We also offer testing services for employers in the surrounding communities. Through our site we offer paper and/or computer based tests. We maintain and adhere to all standards set forth by the National College Testing Association.

Placement Testing

GTCC uses the Reinforced Instruction for Student Excellence (RISE) placement test. What this means for students is that with the change in requirements fewer individuals will actually be required to take a placement test. Click here to determine if you are eligible for a placement test waiver.

**Students who do need to take a placement test will be required to create a testing account at least 24-48 hours prior to testing. When creating your account please use your GTCC email as your user ID. Please click create my test account to start the process.
