Assessment -First Chance

Assessment is the process the college uses to evaluate your skills in areas such as Reading, Writing, Math, and English as a Second Language.

Assessment tests are given several times throughout the year, but you can only take the test once per year. Assessment , along with advisement and orientation, using Asset or COMPASS, takes approximately 3-1/2 hours, and includes receiving results. Use the information below to schedule your test.

Assessment Scheduling Procedure

Location: SU-1

  2. Make an appointment online at the following website: http://www.palomar.edu/counseling/assessment/
Note: No one will be admitted after assessment has begun.  Students may find location prior to their appointment time.
Math Center Backup Placement -Second/Last Chance
If you did not receive the required score to get into the class you desire, you can schedule and take a backup placement test in the Math Learning Center. You can only take this test once a year, so it is recommended that you review the study material before taking the test.
