There is a $10.00 fee for each test. Placement testing fees should be paid prior to testing at the BBCC Business Office in the 1400 building (open at 7:30am). Keep the receipt as you will need to present it when you take the test(s). If you have not pre-paid for the test, plan to arrive early so you can be at the testing center on time.

You MUST bring photo ID and receipt of payment to the test.

All personal belongings, including backpacks, purses, wallets, cell phones, books, etc., will be locked in secure storage during testing.

Results for the math tests are available immediately, but the English results are not available until the following Monday.

Placement tests can be taken a maximum of two times in a 12-month period.

WE RELEASE PLACEMENT RESULTS ONLY to the person taking the exam or with written authorization from that person. We cannot release exam scores over the telephone.

We will mail results upon request and if you complete a mailing envelope while at the test center.
