Remote Placement Testing

Testing is free for all students who use any of GCC's testing centers to take a placement test after being accepted to the college.  

In order to take your placement test at a remote location, you must first complete a request form online. The location for your testing session will be at the testing site closest to the address you provide on the form. Any fees associated with remote testing are the student's responsibility.

Students requesting remote placement testing must reside outside of the following counties:

  • Allegany
  • Monroe
  • Cattaraugus
  • Niagara
  • Erie
  • Ontario
  • Genesee
  • Orleans
  • Livingston
  • Wayne

If you reside in any of the counties listed above, do not complete a request form. The closest place to test is a GCC campus. Contact us at (585) 343 0055 x6354 to locate the GCC Campus Center closest to you.
