  4. Take the Placement Test

    The College tests incoming students in reading, writing and mathematics skills. The results of these tests have no effect on admission to Ocean County College; their purpose is to help the college place students in courses appropriate to their backgrounds and needs.

    If you are a brand new student and have never attended college, you will need to submit standardized test scores or take the College Placement Test.

    • If you do not have qualifying SAT and/or HSPA Scores you may:
      • Go to the Ocean County College testing center and take the College placement test there if you live locally.
      • If you do not live locally, you can speak with your admissions specialist about the simple steps involved in setting up a proctored test at a remote location.

If you have any further questions about our online degree programs, you can email and get the answers that you need.

Thank you for your interest in Ocean County College’s E-learning Program!
