You must have an Application for Admission on file to register for a placement test. Placement testing, or demonstration of an equivalent (e.g. ACT scores or previous college credit coursework), is required before any new, degree or certificate-seeking student is allowed to enroll in ANY coursework.



Group placement testing can also be arranged.  If multiple students from one location are considering attending East Central College, group placement testing is a great option. Students can take the placement test, meet with Financial Aid and register for classes -- all in one day. Available testing dates and times are subject to change due to the college calendar and unanticipated events.


To discuss the group testing option, contact the Admissions Office at 636-584-6588 or
