New to Parkland? All incoming students seeking a degree or certificate must have placements in reading, writing, mathematics, or English as a Second Language to help guide class choices. Sometimes ACT/SAT scores, high school GPA, transfer coursework can be used for these placements. If placements are still needed before seeing a counselor, the Parkland College Assessment Center offers a variety of placement tests to meet your needs. These placement assessments are free to Parkland students for the initial attempt, currently the fee of $10 for each reassessment is being waived.
The Parkland College Assessment Center also administers certification and board exams for community members.
