Most new Tidewater Community College students must complete the Virginia Placement Test in English and mathematics prior to enrolling in classes. Those interested in starting college this summer or fall might want to consider attending a Placement Test Refresher Workshop.

The free workshops are open to the public. You need not be a TCC student or planning to attend TCC to attend.

Each two-hour session – one hour of English and one hour of math prep – offers guidance on taking the computer-based placement test. Workshop attendees can ask questions and learn about resources to prepare for the test on their own.

Registration is not required. You can participate multiple times if necessary.

Workshops are offered in the Learning Assistance Center on TCC’s Chesapeake, Norfolk and Portsmouth campuses at the following times:
