Math Placement

Prior to registering for classes, most students need to take an English and math placement test as part of the Admission process.

  • Math placement is determined by taking an Edmonds College Math Placement Test OR
  • By submitting documentation that exempts you from taking the Edmonds College Math Placement Test.

In-person Testing: Come to Mountlake Terrace Hall, Room #152.  Make sure to show up at least two hours before we close.  Also make sure to bring your photo ID and have your ctcLink ID number ready.

Remote Testing:
 In order to set up your remote placement test, please email us at testingcenter@edmonds.edu and list the following information in your message:  

- Your full name

- Your ctcLInk ID number

- The placement test you wish to take.

What to Expect:

Challenging your Placement
