Welcome to the SLCC Placement Process

The Placement Process helps us get to know you better. These classes complete your Composition (EN—English/ESL) and Quantitative Literacy/Quantitative Studies (QL/QS—Math) Core Skills requirements.

Each placement quiz has a separate time limit that allows more time than you may need. The estimated time it should take you to complete the entire process is 30 minutes. Once you have completed your placement, it will take between 24-48 hours before it is applied to your records, and you are allowed to register. After the assessment, please speak with an advisor.
