General Information

Picture ID and Folsom Lake College Student ID Number are required

A photo id is required. Also, you must apply to Folsom Lake College in order to be eligible for assessment. You may apply online at www.flc.losrios.edu or in person at the Admissions office. Students who do not have a photo id and valid student id number will not be allowed to test. There is no fee. Calculators, dictionaries, cell phones, pagers, and food or drink are not permitted.

First Come First Serve Basis

Please note that all testing is on a first come, first serve basis. Appointments are only given to DSPS students. During peak times students may have to wait as long as two hours for a computer to become available. There is also the possibility that some students may not be able to test on a given test date if our capacity is exceeded.


Results are available immediately after computerized testing concludes at each of our locations. ESL students must wait approximately one week for results. For students who completed English, ESL, or Math placement testing prior to February 16th, 2013 the placement test results will be valid for 3 years. For students who assess after February 16th, 2013 the test results will be valid for 2 years.

Keep your assessment results as you may need to show them to your instructor, and they may also be documentation that you meet certain graduation requirements. 

To obtain another copy of your assessment results log onto your Eservices account using your student id number and password. Click on the Steps to Success tab. Also, you can go to the admissions office at any of our locations to request another copy of your assessment results. Photo id is required when picking up test results. No information will be given out over the phone or faxed to an individual. No second party may pick up your results.
