Most colleges require incoming students to take some sort of placement test. Placement tests help us determine how strong you are in certain core subjects, allowing us to place you in a course where you will be challenged, but successful.
At Klamath Community College, we don't require all students to take a placement test, but most students do end up taking a placement test.
Currently, KCC uses the COMPASS Placement Test, which includes two sections: Math and Reading/Writing.
Placement testing is completely free to incoming students, and is a helpful tool for advisors to put you into the right courses. Each section of the placement test takes about an hour.
