Due to the COVID-19 closure, our office is closed and we are not administering any tests at this time.

Students may complete their English placement remotely by taking our English Directed Self Placement tool.(Please note, Basic and Transitional Studies Level Four and below and International Students with F-1 Visas are not eligible for the Directed Self Placement tool).

If you need to take a math placement test before our office is open, you may take the math placement test online through. Please send all placement test scores to NSCTesting@seattlecolleges.edu.

To register to take the English and/or math placement e-mail to NSCTesting@seattlecolleges.edu.

Faculty are to work with student’s receiving testing accommodations directly to ensure this adjustment is adhered to and provided, as specified in their Letter of Accommodation (LOA).

Proctored Tests

North Seattle College offers proctoring services for any paper or online exam from other institutions.

The proctoring fee is $40.00, per 4 hours of testing. (This does not apply to any North Seattle classes.) If you are interested in having an exam proctored, you will first need to contact your affiliated institution on their procedures. Once you have the information that you need, please contact us to setup your exam.

The first thing you will need to do is fill out a Request to Proctor Exam Form for Outside Universities at the link below:

Request to Proctor Exam for Outside Universities

Your college or institution will then mail your exam or information to us directly. Due to the high volume of exams we proctor, you will not be notified when your exam arrives—you will need to contact us to confirm that your exam has been received.

Children are not permitted into the exam rooms at any time. They must be supervised outside of the Testing Office. Per District regulation, Testing staff will not provide child supervision for any reason.
