Rogue Community College is closely monitoring the COVID-19 cases in Oregon to keep our students, staff, faculty, and visitors safe and informed. Due to the restrictions resulting from COVID-19 and to meet the needs of our students, we are offering remote Placement Assessments utilizing Zoom. Zoom is a free web-based video conference solution that you can access via the web, we can show you how. You will also need a computer, Internet access, a web camera, and a quiet room.

In order to schedule your Placement assessment, please email placementtest@roguecc.edu and request a date on either a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday for a remote assessment session.

If you do not have access to those items listed above, we are also offering in-person Placement Assessment sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays alternating at our Riverside and Redwood campuses.

In order to schedule your Placement assessment, please email placementtest@roguecc.edu and request a date on either a Tuesday or Thursday for in person assessment session.

For students that will be attending an in-person Placement Assessment, all surfaces will be disinfected before and after Placement sessions using procedures recommended by the CDC and will follow social distancing guidelines allowing for at least six feet between students. If you attend the Placement session on-site we ask you to:

  • Practice social distancing by staying at least six feet away from other people.
  • Use hand sanitizer that will be provided.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before coming to the Placement session.
  • We encourage you to bring your own mask and gloves if you would like to wear them.
  • If you do need to cough or sneeze due to allergies, be sure to cover it with a sleeve or tissue.
  • If you or someone in your household is sick or you are otherwise unwilling to come to campus, please stay home. We will work with you to place you utilizing remote Placement Assessment or another method. Please call 541-956-7217 or send an email to recruitment@roguecc.edu if you need to utilize another method
