Preparation for Testing

Before You Come
  • Prior to taking an assessment testing, students must Apply to Mission College.

  • If you have a U.S. high school transcript to submit, you can upload it through our Transcript Upload Form or drop it off in person to the Assessment Center at SEC 109.

  • If you need to take an assessment, complete the Assessment Preparation Form. Review our sample tests and know which math test you want. Bring the form with your Mission College ID Number and a photo ID with you to testing.

  • Students with disabilities can contact the Disability Support Programs and Services (DSPS) in Room 240 CC or by calling (408) 855-5085 or TTY at (408) 727-9243 to make an appointment.
