If you do not require placement testing as determined earlier, you can skip this step.

A quick word on placement testing.

For this step, you will need a valid photo ID such as:

  • Current Drivers License
  • State Issued Photo ID
  • Current Passport
  • Military ID with photo
  • Tribal ID with photo
  • Other forms of government issued ID
  • College student ID with photo

Don't forget that we strongly recommend you prepare and study for your placement test.

Visit Testing Services at either MCC campus today to take your test.
