Placement Testing with Accommodations
All students who enroll at Penn College must take tests in reading, math, and English to determine appropriate placement in college level classes. These tests are given throughout the year preceding enrollment.
To be scheduled for accommodated placement testing, you must contact the Disability Services program assistive technology specialist after receiving a testing date through the Academic Services and First Year Programs Office. Accommodations for placement testing are based on the history of the services and testing accommodations that you received in high school.
Accommodated placement testing dates are posted on the Disability Services home page.
