Virtual Remote Testing

Virtual Testing

New students may take their placement tests at no cost in-person at Lane Community College main campus, Cottage Grove Center, or Florence Center. The option to take the Accuplacer Reading and Writing test virtually is also available for $25. We also offer the math placement ALEKS PPL virtually ($22 for up to three hours, additional fee for same day testing).

Virtual online testing allows you to have your Accuplacer and/or ALEKS test proctored online from just about anywhere, even at home. You will need a fast internet connection, speakers, and a camera on your computer. You must have an appropriate student identification number (Lane CC L#) which you will receive by email once you complete your admissions form when following the “Steps to Enroll”. 

Note: Retesting will cost an additional proctoring fee and will require a new voucher request form.
