Out of an abundance of caution and in compliance with the CDC’s social distancing guidelines, Bucks County Community College is temporarily moving to a remote testing solution for placement testing. Students will be able to test at home through their own computers. For the Math Placement Test, a webcam, microphone, and desktop or laptop computer are required for this test. If you only have access to a Chromebook or iPad, please contact Testing at email@example.com for alternate instructions. Students must first apply to the College. Instructions for testing will be sent in their acceptance letter.
***If you have already been accepted to the College and need to test, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions.***
However, AESL students must contact email@example.com for more information on placement testing options, advising, and registration.
New processes for prerequisite approval via transcripts from another college for guest and transfer students are posted on the Registrar resource page.
If you have any questions regarding the placement tests you are required to take, testing waivers, or the next steps in the enrollment process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions regarding the tests themselves, you may speak to Testing Center staff during Testing Center Office Hours. Staff will be available to assist with any Placement Testing questions. Due to demand, there may be a wait before staff can speak with you. Please be patient.
For the Testing Center Office Hours schedule, please visit our Testing Center Office Hours schedule.
