Highland Community College’s Testing Center, located in the Success Center (M-113), is dedicated to enhancing student learning and community offerings by providing comprehensive, accessible testing, and assessment services.
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.
The Highland Community College Testing Center provides comprehensive testing services for Highland students and community members in a distraction-free environment.
Beginning with the fall 2020 semester, 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.
Times are as follows: Monday – Friday: 8 a.m., 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m., with additional time slots of 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Wednesdays.
Please make sure to call well in advance of your testing window, so as to ensure you solidify a time while there is ample availability.
During Phase 4 of Illinois’ re-opening plan, the Testing Center will offer online and in-person placement testing, ADA testing, specialty testing, and limited make-up exams on an appointment-only basis. Same day testing will be available if needed.
