Bucks County Community College is currently offering a remote testing solution for placement testing. Students will be able to test at home through their own computers. A webcam, microphone, and desktop or laptop computer are required for testing. If you do not meet these technical requirements or if you only have access to a Chromebook, tablet, or mobile device, you must test in person in the Testing Center. 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 want to test remotely, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions. When emailing, please include your name, as it appeared on your application, your seven-digit Bucks ID number, and your Date of Birth.
In-person testing is available in Newtown on a walk-in basis. Please visit Placement Test Schedule to view the testing schedule.

Violations of Academic Integrity in the Testing Center include the following:
- Cheating on a exam which is the use or attempted use of unauthorized material, information, electronic device or study aid on an exam.
- Impersonating - which is assuming another individual’s identity or allowing another individual to do so, for the purpose of fulfilling an academic requirement.
***If it’s determined that a student checking in to take a exam is using an ID that is fraudulent or the person is impersonating the ID campus security will be contacted immediately.
