Placement Testing Schedules

Placement testing is available on a walk-in, first-come, first-served basis.

Important Notes

  • There is no fee for placement tests.  However, you must show Testing Center staff a correct student EMPLID. You receive an EMPLID when you apply for admission to John Tyler.
  • Practicing before you take placement tests can save you time and money.  Online practice tests for English and Math, a VPT MathSite and VPT Math questions/answers are all available to help. 
  • Test scores are valid for two (2) years after the date of the test. Students who take the placement test and who do not enroll in developmental coursework are allowed to take one (1) retest within twelve (12) months. Students who attempt developmental coursework will be ineligible for a retest. Exceptions to this retest policy may be made on a case-by-case basis and addressed to the appropriate director of counseling: either Dr. Ruth Varney at Midlothian or Altrice Smith at Chester.
  • Summer applicants are expected to take the placement test no later than May 25, 2015. Those who delay past this date may not be able to enroll in classes for the summer term.
