    Welcome to the Testing Center

    Testing Center KioskWe provide placement testing to new Prince George's Community College students and instructional testing to students enrolled in selected disciplines or course formats. The Center also administers competency and challenge examinations, on behalf of certain departments.

    The Testing Center is located in Bladen Hall, Room 100 (check the directions to the campus and campus map below it), in a modern testing facility and the Center provides quarter-operated lockers for examinees to secure their books and other personal possessions. Quarters are returned to students when they retrieve their belongings from the lockers. To view the hours of operation and other information on our services, please click on one of the links in the left column of this page.

    Photo ID Required for ALL Services

    Students taking academic tests (any test or exam required by a course in which a student is enrolled at PGCC) are required to have their PGCC Student ID card, which must be presented to Testing Center staff when checking in. Any student who does not present his/her valid PGCC Student ID card will not be allowed to take any academic tests. We encourage students to obtain a PGCC ID card as soon as possible after they have registered for classes and carry it with them on any PGCC campus.

    Prospective students without PGCC ID cards who want to take the placement test should refer to the placement test instructions.

    Personal property MUST be secured in lockers

    No personal property (including, but not limited to books, notes, purses, bags, phones, pagers, PDAs) is allowed at the testing stations. Possessions brought into the center must be secured in a locker, which requires a quarter. The quarter is returned when the locker is reopened. Change is not available from college staff, but change machines are located near some vending machines around the campus

    What's my student ID number?

    After you applied and paid your application fee, the Admissions office assigned you a student ID number to be used for registration and all tests. You may find this number on your bill, on your schedule, or by logging into your Owl Link account.

    No children and no guests

    Testing Center FloorGuests are not permitted in the Testing Center (no spouses, children, parents, siblings or other friends or family). Only examinees and authorized College staff are allowed.
