Post-Secondary Education Readiness Test (PERT)
PERT is a customized placement test for students attending State of Florida colleges. The State of Florida requires all first-time students and transfer students, who have not completed a college level math and English course, to take a placement test (PERT). Students may use ACT, SAT or PERT scores (or combination) that are no more than two-years old. Please refer to the test score policy (.pdf) for the scoring criteria for each test.
PERT is a computerized adaptive placement test and may be retaken if the student is not pleased with their scores. Remediation is recommended (after the first attempt) from one of the “approved providers”. If a student wishes to retest then the student must wait a minimum of thirty days before their next attempt. Test scores are valid for two years. View a list of recommended approved remediation providers
Students who wish to take the placement test (at TCC) to attend another school are required to pay a $25.00 proctor fee. In addition, the designated school must establish TCC as a satellite testing site and complete the PERT authorization for the purpose of administering the test on their behalf.
The PERT is administered on a walk-in basis, Monday through Friday. PERT is untimed, but please allow a minimum of three hours for testing in all subjects: English, Reading and Math. Please see the Testing Center Hours of Operation
for available testing times.
