Welcome to Folsom Lake College Assessment. The purpose of assessment testing is to place students in English, English as a Second Language (ESL), and Math classes that match their skill level so that students can be successful. The goal of the assessment office is to provide professional test administration and to ensure that students understand their course placement within the sequence of classes offered at Folsom Lake College.
Students must be currently active as a FLC student (enrollment within the last 2 semesters) by either completing the online application or the supplemental enrollment form and have a student ID number prior to assessment. Students who applied to another Los Rios college must visit the Admissions and Records office prior to assessment to make sure they become activated for FLC (which ensures that they receive credit for the assessment step).
A valid photo id (school or government issued) is required for assessment.
Placement testing is on a first come, first serve basis. No appointments are necessary. Please see Testing Calendars for testing dates and times.
Folsom Lake College accepts assessment results from all Los RIos Colleges (American River College, Cosumnes River College, and Sacramento City College). We do not accept results from any other colleges. Also, we do not accept EAP test results. Folsom Lake College does grant credit towards its degrees for examinations successfully completed through the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) program. Please see the College Catalog for further information about AP tests.
Students who need special accommodations for testing should call the DSP&S office at (916) 608-6611 for FLC or at (530) 642-5630 for EDC.
