Testing Center

The Testing Center provides assessment and instructional testing to new and current students.

 
Your assessment requirements can be met at El Centro's Testing Center at the Downtown location. We are here to service students and faculty.

We are located in the basement of A building in room A067.

The Downtown Testing Center provides a wide range of services including:
 
  • Placement Testing
  • Instructional Testing
  • TOEFL
  • Teacher Certification Exams
  • Diagnostic Testing
  • Distance Learning online Testing
  • CLEP
  • Dual Credit Testing
  • TSI Testing

The Downtown Testing Center is a closed center. We only test those people who are enrolled or are about to enroll in El Centro College.

Walk-ins are welcomed for Assessment testing, provided that there are available testing stations. We prefer that appointments are made and kept. We operate in a quiet, user-friendly environment. All staff members are well-trained, friendly and eager to assist you.

The last test is given out 90 minutes before closing time (Mon. –Thurs.) and at 1:30 p.m. on both Fridays & Saturdays - plan ahead!

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further inquiry.
