Placement Test Schedule

When and Where

Placement tests can be taken at either campus during walk-in hours - however, be aware that the testing centers may become very busy during peak times and current students who require exams for classes will have first priority over placement testing. Placement tests are not given in either testing center during Final Exams because of the increased volume.

Placement tests are also offered periodically on weekday evenings and Saturdays. Dates and locations for those exams are below.

Remote placement testing is available for individuals who live outside the Oakton Community College area. Please contact Oakton's Distance Learning department: or 847.635.1970.
