Placement Testing

All new Florida State College at Jacksonville students are required to take a college placement test.

Students who live within the First Coast (Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, St. Johns, and Union Counties) are required to take the placement test at a FSCJ campus. Contact the most conveniently located FSCJ campus assessment center to schedule the exams. To schedule your placement test, make a testing appointment.

For Remote students living outside of the First Coast area, please review the Remote Placement APS Form  and the Remote PERT Proctor Form. The forms must be completed and submitted at least two weeks prior to the desired testing date.  For additional assistance, please send an email to requesting information on taking the college placement test as a remote student. You will receive a reply to your email request within two business days. You may also call (904) 997-2676 for assistance. Please note, Students are responsible for any proctor fees charged by the remote site.

Please also ask about the Senate Bill 1720 exemption. Students may qualify for the exemption if they meet the following criteria:
