ESL/Bilingual Placement Testing

Before being admitted to ECC, students whose first or dominant language is not English must take a test which will place them into correct classes for English and math. Testing is completed using the COMPASS/ESL computerized placement test in addition to an essay and oral interview. If English is not your first or dominant language, contact the ESL Student Support Center for an appointment to take the placement test.
