Assessment Center

The Assessment Center offers a computerized assessment test to students in order to determine ability levels in Reading, Writing, Math and/or English as a Second Language (ESL). This process enables students to enroll in the appropriate courses, including courses designed to prepare for college-level work.


  • Assessments are offered Monday through Friday during our posted walk-in hours. No appointment is needed, but make sure to allow yourself at least two hours to complete the full assessment.
  • Students must complete the online college application and have an AVC Student ID Number prior to taking the assessment. A valid photo ID (goverment or school issued) is required at check-in.
  • When you come in to take the assessment, it is extremely important that you take it seriously. We encourage you to explore this website and view our FAQs and suggested Study Materials. By preparing in advance, you will give yourself the best opportunity to place into courses to help you succeed in your studies.
  • Results are available immediately after taking an assessment. Students are encouraged to visit the Counseling Center afterwards to develop an Educational Plan.

Palmdale Residents: Note that assessment tests are also offered at the Palmdale Center.
