Assessment Testing Information

Oxnard College uses placement tests  as one of the measures to assess academic skill level for appropriate course placement.

These assessments provide a measure of a student's:

  • Knowledge in basic skills (Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Spanish & Proficiency in English as a Second Language [ESL] )
  • Academic readiness for college-level classes.

 Assessments are free of charge for Oxnard College students, and are required for students who:

  • Are attending OC for the first time with the goal of completing a Certificate, an Associate’s Degree (AA/AS), or an Associate's Degree for Transfer (ADT).
  • Plan to take an English, Math, Spanish or ESL course
  • Plan to take a General Education course requiring college-level skills

Assessment testing is on a drop-in basis, no appointments required.
Note: Please allow 2-3 hours for testing if you are taking both the Math and English Assessment tests
