Assessment Center

Welcome to the CBC Assessment Center!

Your success is our top priority--even before you sign up for classes! We want you to know which classes are right for you, from the program you want to pursue to the level of English and math you'll need to complete it. That's where the Assessment Center comes in; we're here to help you figure out where to get started on your journey to success at CBC!

Whether you're in need of course placement or an industry certification, we offer a wide variety of assessment tools to help you meet your educational, professional and personal goals.

Testing Calendar

The Directed Self Placement option is free and can be accessed anytime from any location with an internet connection! To ensure you have enough time to complete all modules in one session, we encourage you to dedicate at least two hours to complete the assessments. You may need less time if you are re-testing in one or two areas.

Testing Calendar

1. Bring your current photo ID.

The Assessment Center is unable to provide testing services if you do not have a valid photo ID.

2. Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment.

Give yourself a few extra minutes to get checked in and ready to test!

3. Leave all personal belongings at home.

To maintain testing security, all personal items (including cell phones, calculators, food, drinks, etc.) will be collected prior to your test. CBC cannot assume responsibility for the loss or damage of anything brought into the Assessment Center. Pencils, paper and an online calculator will be provided during your test, if applicable.

4. Tell your support person you'll see them when your test is finished.

Your friend or relative will not be able to accompany you into the testing room. Please review our Campus Safety Measures page for current requirements for campus visitors.

Most test fees can be paid on campus at Hawk Central, conveniently located adjacent to the Assessment Center. Hawk Central accepts cash, personal and cashier's checks, money orders, Visa and MasterCard.
