Step 4: Assessment (CORE STEP)

If you are enrolling in a program that leads to certification, an Associate Degree, university transfer, job skill training, improvement of basic skills, or if you are undecided about your educational goal, you should take assessment tests in math, English/reading or English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL). Please test prior to advising and registration. Counselors use placement recommendations or your transcripts to suggest appropriate coursework. Assessment tests are offered year-round at the MJC Assessment Testing Center. For more information visit the Assessment Testing Center webpage. Your individual test results can be found by logging into PiratesNet!

Important Testing Information    You must have a current admissions application on-file and know your student ID number prior to testing.  No appointment is necessary.  See our schedule for walk-in hours.  If you tested at another California community college, you can send your results to the MJC Enrollment Services Office (at least six weeks prior to registration). If you have completed English, math, or chemistry courses at another college, you must submit an official transcript along with a Prerequisite Clearance Form, at least six weeks prior to registration, to the MJC Enrollment Service Office.

Accommodations for Students with Disabilities can be arranged for any college service if the request is made at least 10 days prior to the service or activity.  Please contact MJC's Disability Services:
