Placement Testing

Placement testing on campus is not available while IVCC is closed.  We will be in contact with potential IVCC students about placement testing options when we learn more about opportunities for testing available to students. If you need to speak to an IVCC counselor, please call (815) 224-0360 to schedule a phone or Zoom appointment.
