Testing Services

Testing Services provides excellent student support to help students meet Matriculation and Assessment requirements.  If you are new to college and plan to transfer, earn an associate degree or a vocational certificate, or improve basic skills or if you are undecided about your goal, you should matriculate.  Matriculation in the community colleges is a process that promotes and sustains students’ efforts to achieve their educational goals. Matriculation affords the individual access to educational opportunities, and then takes steps to increase the likelihood of the individual’s success. One aspect of matriculation is to provide assessments that are useful for assisting the student‘s selection of an educational program. Matriculation is also helpful if you are returning to school after a long absence.  Assessments or approved alternatives are required if you plan to enroll in English or math classes.  Classes in other subject areas may also require English and math assessments.

Services also houses the Academic Proctoring Center, a unique test proctoring service for students. Matriculation, Assessment and Academic Proctoring are available at the Oceanside campus and San Elijo campus locations.
