Our Best Answer - Do I need to take placement tests?

Placement Tests

To demonstrate basic skills necessary for success in college coursework, all new students at Triton College enrolling in credit-bearing classes must take placement tests in English, Reading, and Math or provide alternate evidence of skills. You may be exempted from specific placement tests if you have:

  • ACT-English and Reading scores of 20 or higher within the last two years
  • ACT-Math score of 23 or higher within the last two years
  • Documentation of a grade of “C” or higher in college level English and/or Mathematics courses from a regionally accredited institution
  • Approval of the Dean or designee

A placement test waiver form must be submitted. Students enrolling in non-credit and certain credit courses may not be required to take placement tests. For more information, call (708)456-0300, ext. 3130 or speak with a counselor.
