Foothill College offers several different testing services, including placement tests, accommodated testing, iTEP exams, and proctoring for California Community College on-line students.
All tests are free of charge, with the exception of the iTEP.  All tests require an appointment and picture identification.

PLACEMENT TESTING
Foothill College administeres English/ESL, math and chemistry placement tests.  These tests are designed to place you in appropriate classes that match your skills and understanding of a subject. 
Placement testing is one of the requirements for students qualifying for priority registration.  Depending on your course of study you may be required to take one or more of these tests if you have not previously successfully completed college-level work in a particular discipline.*  Placements are often pre-requisites or advisements for not only chemistry, math or English/ESL classes, but other classes as well.

You must apply to Foothill College and receive your student ID number before placement testing.  You MUST present a picture ID at the time of testing (student ID, passport, government issued ID)

Have placement scores from another college?  Email them to FHTesting@fhda.edu.  They may be acceptable, but certain restrictions apply.

Check out our website for tips on preparing for your math placement testing.  You may also want to visit EdReady.

*If you have course work from another college that you wish to use in lieu of testing, please see out Clearing a Prerequisites page.  EAP scores of "Exceeds standards" are also acceptable in lieu of taking placement tests for math and/or English.

ACCOMMODATED TESTING
Accommodated testing is offered in conjunction with our Disability Resource Center.  If you have a disability and wish to take advantage of this and other services, contact the DRC.

PROCTORED TESTING
Students taking courses at any California Community College may have exams proctored for their on-line classes.  We do not do any other proctoring.  Contact the Testing Office for futher information.

OTHER TESTING
iTEP (International Test of English Proficiency) exams may be taken for a variety of reasons.  Note that there is a cost involved in taking this exam. 
Foothill Colleges does NOT offer the TOEFL test.  For further information on TOEFL

We also do not do Dantes/DSST testing.
