Assessment and Testing

The assessment program at Ventura College provides assessment services to assist students in determining their appropriate placement into English and math classes.  Math testing is also used to determine math competency for awarding of Associate degrees.  Additionally, the assessment program provides ability to benefit testing services to determine eligibility for financial aid for students with neither a high school diploma nor a GED Certificate.  The assessment program provides reportage regarding assessment activities and provides related data to interested campus entities.  Assessment also provides prerequisite verification for students who completed course prerequisites at other institutions, and who need prerequisites verified before they can register for classes at Ventura College. 

Assessment is a component of the Matriculation program.  The Assessment Office is located in the Student Services Center.  The assessment test schedule can be found on the college website,  For more information please contact the Assessment Office by telephone at (805) 289-6402, or by email at
