Welcome to the RCC Assessment Center

The Assessment Center exists to help you make better, more informed educational choices that will help you realize your educational goals in a timely manner.  Our assessment process measures your skill level in certain core educational subjects such as math and English.   As with all Student Services, we can offer services only to students who selected Riverside City College as their home college when they submitted their online admissions application. If you aren’t sure, log on to WebAdvisor and click Update Program of Study.
Most students take our general English, Math and Reading assessment.  However, we also have tests in Chemistry, English as a Second Language, and Spanish.  All tests should be taken seriously because they will establish your starting point in classes you will need to succeed at RCC.  Most of these core classes include prerequisites - courses you must take before you can be admitted to more advanced classes. These prerequisites are strictly enforced.​
