Online Students & Remote Testing

Holyoke Community College offers a wide array of online courses and recognizes that a robust online community is comprised of students from across the country, and often the world! Many online courses require placement test scores as a registration prerequisite for students who have not previously completed a college level English or math course. For the convenience of our online students, HCC offers admitted students the opportunity to complete the assessment off campus, and outside of Massachusetts.
