Get Assessed

All students attending Mt. San Antonio College are required to be assessed (through placement tests) to ensure they are placed in the right courses. The welcome email you receive 1-2 weeks after you submit your application indicates the placement tests you need to take before completing the enrollment process. If you’re not sure which placement tests you need to take, contact our Assessment Center at (909) 274-4265.

The assessment process and placement tests help you decide which classes are best to take as you start your college career, ensuring that your time at Mt. SAC is successful. If you have successfully completed an English and/or math course at another college, university, or trade school, please submit your official transcripts to the Admissions and Records Office.

After submitting your application, you must complete the following steps prior to taking your placement tests:

  1. Sign up for Test Information Sessions
  2. Complete the Student Success Inventory
  3. Make an appointment to take the placement test(s)

We also highly recommend that you read over some quick information regarding the tests to help you do your best.

Before you can register for classes, you must complete the entire enrollment process, including any required assessment tests and orientation. Click through the buttons at the top of this page to learn about each step in the process.
