Taking placement assessments
- ACCUPLACER at the Port Angeles campus is offered in the Student Services (clock tower) Building 'D', Room 212.
- Pay the $20 testing fee (retesting fee is $15) at Pirate Central (main floor).
- Please bring your receipt, picture ID and your Peninsula College ID number to the testing center on the second floor.
- No hand-held calculators are allowed.
The assessment score indicates the appropriate starting point for each student. ACCUPLACER is a computerized placement assessment. It is untimed, and therefore it is hard to estimate how long the session may last. An average time is 1.5 hours. Your results will be available minutes after finishing.
You must take a placement assessment if you have not satisfactorily completed one or more quarters of college-level work, including English and mathematics, with a 2.00 GPA or higher. Incoming students with Advanced Placement Test scores of 3 or better in English and mathematics may have the assessment process waived. Contact Enrollment Services for AP test score evaluation. Call (360) 417-6340 or email email@example.com.
Placement scores are valid for two years.
We accept the following assessments: ACCUPLACER, ASSET, and COMPASS. If you took your assessment at a different college and it has been less than two years, please have the college fax us a copy. Our fax number is: (360) 417-6416.
Toll-free at (877) 452-9277, Ext. 6346.
