Assessment: College Placement Testing

Welcome to the Assessment Center at Bunker Hill Community College!

The Assessment Center is committed to providing excellent customer service to our test takers. Placement testing is available on a walk-in basis on Tuesday and Thursday and by appointment on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  To make an appointment, please click here. A valid government issued photo ID (passport, driver’s license, MA state ID card, Resident Alien card) or a BHCC ID is required to test.

Students must arrive at least two hours before we close as testing usually takes between two and three hours. Telephones, calculators and dictionaries are not permitted. Scrap paper and pencils are provided. Children are not allowed in the Testing Room.  If you have children, please make arrangements for their care while you take your placement test.  Children cannot be left unattended while testing is in progress.

The Assessment Center strongly recommends practicing before taking the exam. Please visit Preparing for the CPT for a list of free practice sites.
