Placement Testing Schedules

Placement testing is available on a walk-in, first-come, first-served basis.

Important Notes

  • There is no fee for placement tests.  However, you must show Testing Center staff a correct student EMPLID. You receive an EMPLID when you apply for admission to John Tyler.
  • If you have taken SATs, ACTs, or GED in the past two years, your scores may exempt you from placement tests (see chart below for minimum score requirements).

  • Practicing before you take placement tests can save you time and money.  Here are some good ways to review:
  • Test scores are valid for two (2) years after the date of the test. Students who take the placement test and who do not enroll in developmental coursework are allowed to take one (1) retest within twelve (12) months. Students who attempt developmental coursework will be ineligible for a retest. Exceptions to this retest policy may be made on a case-by-case basis and addressed to the appropriate director of advising: either Dr. Ruth Varney at Midlothian or Altrice Smith at Chester.
