Placement Testing Options
Triton offers both on-campus and remote placement testing. Below are instructions for each testing method. On-campus testing is encouraged.
If you are a new Triton student, and you haven’t already done so, you will need to submit an online application before proceeding with the placement test. More information on submitting an application can be found here: https://www.triton.edu/admissions-aid/getting-started/
On-campus placement testing instructions:
Step 1: Make an appointment using the "appointment locator" at the top of this page. (Even though the appointment slot will only show for 15 minutes, your exam session will take about 3 hours to complete.)
Step 2: Check in on campus at the Testing Center (Building A, room A-126) at your scheduled appointment date and time. A valid ID with your name and photo on it is required.
Remote placement testing instructions:
For remote placement testing, you will NOT be making an appointment on this page. You will be making your appointment on the Examity website after you receive your test voucher. Please follow these steps for remote testing:
Step 1: Review and confirm your computer requirements at https://www.accuplacer.org/#/systemRequirement
*You may continue to step #2 below if your equipment passes all the requirements.
**If your equipment does not pass all the minimum requirements, it is recommended that take your placement exam on-campus by following the steps in the section above**
Step 2: If your computer requirements are met, complete and submit this Examity Accuplacer Request Form
Step 3: Receive email from Accuplacer with test voucher and appointment scheduling instructions within 24 hours (requests submitted Friday - Sunday may not be processed until the following Monday)
Step 4: Schedule your testing appointment with Examity
Step 5: Complete your Accuplacer test during your scheduled time with Examity (exam must be completed in one sitting)
Step 6: Receive “next steps” instructions from Triton testing staff within about 24 hours of completing Accuplacer (Friday - Sunday testing may not be processed until the following Monday)
New first year students may be exempt from the placement test by demonstrating college-level proficiency through other qualifying measures. Please refer to Triton College's Placement Measures for more information.
