Office of Assessment

New Student Testing

Cambridge College’s Office of Assessment runs all of the new student assessments.  All new students are required to take writing assessments upon acceptance. In addition, during their first semester, new students take the College Student Inventory as part of their LRN 175 Principles and Processes of Adult Learning class. All of these assessments are given by our Learning Assessment Coordinator who can be reached at CELT@cambridgecolleg.edu

CLEP Testing

Our office of assessment is a certified CLEP test center. CLEP exams help students receive college credit for what they already know, for a fraction of the cost. They enable students to place out of introductory courses and move more quickly towards their major area of study. A CLEP exam costs $87 plus the College’s $30 admin fee. Contact us at  CELT@cambridgecollege.edu

Language Testing for Credit

The office of assessment operates language testing for credit for undergraduate students.  Students may elect to pay a fee to take an assessment for prior knowledge in any foreign language. If they pass this assessment, they can earn up to 12 credits for a nominal fee. These credits can be included in their academic plans and count toward a degree.  To find out if you are eligible to take these exams, contact undergraduate advising at AcademicAdvisingUG@cambridgecollege.edu

Foreign Language Testing for Proficiency

The Office of Assessments also conducts language testing for college entry for international students. We operate the Michigan test for graduate and undergraduate students. This test costs $75 and can be scheduled by emailing CELT@cambridgecollege.edu or using the online form on MyCC
