Step Three: Download the paper application, fill it out, and return the documents to me. Don't forget to add a copy of your ID and placement exam scores!
(Tip*** You can save paper by emailing me an image of your ID and a screenshot of your placement exam scores so I can print them out for you and attach them to the paper application.)

Oh no, I did not attend the placement test at school. Now what?!
"City Colleges of Chicago Placement Test(s) are 100% online test(s) accessible anywhere, anytime, via my.ccc.edu. Placement tests give us a better understanding of your knowledge and skills so that we can get you started in the best courses for you."
Juniors- you will qualify with SAT scores only. I don't want you taking the placement test as you will need to take it again next year, and you can only do it one time per 12 calendar months.
Sophomores- Relax! You can also take the test at anytime at Daley! Here is the information. Please remember to "Print" a confirmation and either save it as a PDF and email it to vpuentes@cps.edu, OR provide me with a hard copy.
