Computerized Placement Test designed to provide placement information for students entering higher education. All students entering any one of the College‚Äôs degree programs or those entering ENG 121 or MAT 121/MAT 135 will be required to take an exam unless they have documentation of assessment scores from another 2-year Colorado college completed within the last 5 years, ACT scores of Reading 17, English 18, Math 23/21, or proof of an Associate Degree (AA or AS) or higher.
Before taking the assessment, you must meet with an advisor. To schedule an appointment with an advisor, please call your center director or Student Services at 970 542-3100. The CCPT is designed to be taken one¬ time. Students should talk to their advisor about options after testing if they did not get the score required for their courses. Retesting is by permission only, and must be approved by your advisor. If permission to retest is granted, there is a fee of $10 for eachsection of the test. Placement tests are untimed, but take approximately 1 ¬Ĺ hours per section which would be around 3 hours total. It is recommended that testing is completed over a two day period to avoid testing fatigue.
