Testing Center

Highland Community College’s Testing Center, located in the Success Center (M-113), provides comprehensive, accessible testing and assessment services in a distraction-free environment.

The center is committed to maintaining the highest compliance with nationally-recognized testing standards and practices, safeguarding the confidentiality of student records, and creating an optimal testing environment.

Students may use a qualifying high school grade point average for placement. A cumulative, unweighted 3.0-grade point average or above (on a 4.0 scale), combined with four years of math and English, will provide college-level placement in both English and mathematics at Highland.

To get in touch with the Testing Center, you may call 815-599-3680 or email

Please make sure to call well in advance of your testing window to ensure you secure a testing time. Photo ID is required for testing. Space is limited for each testing session; times are by appointment only.
