New Retest Policy and Standard Assessment Practices


  Assessment Placement Expiration Dates

Effective February 16, 2013 District rules have changed regarding the expiration date of your assessment placement results.

To calculate your assessment expiration date for assessment tests taken after February 16, 2013, go to either the September 15th or February 15th date that follows your test date (whichever comes first) and add two calendar years.

Your assessment results will be valid proof of prerequisites for classes beginning before that expiration date. If the class you want to take begins after the expiration date of your assessment results, then you must retake the assessment test.

For Example:


If you took the assessment between:

Your assessment expires:

February 16, 2013 and September 15, 2013

September 15, 2015

September 16, 2013 and February 15, 2014

February 15, 2016

February 16, 2014 and September 15, 2014

September 15, 2016

September 16, 2014 and February 15, 2015

February 15, 2017

NOTE:  Keep these new rules in mind and be sure to bring your assessment print-out to courses with established pre-requisites.
