Testing Requirements

 All students testing at our facility are required to provide:

  • a valid Santa Monica College ID number; and

  • a government issued photo identification card (e.g., California driver's license, California ID card, passport, or military ID).

  • If you are still in high school or just graduated, a high school ID may be presented.

  • A second form of ID may be required in some cases. Be sure to bring TWO forms of ID with you.

  • Photocopies of IDs, passports, etc., will not be accepted under ANY circumstances.

  • We will not be able to test you without proper ID. If you have lost yours, please go to your nearest DMV office to obtain a temporary driver’s license or ID. We will gladly accept a DMV printout (with varifying information).

  • You cannot be currently enrolled in a class in which you are interested in testing for. For example: if you are enrolled in a Mathematics class you will not be qualified to retake the Mathematics test. Same would apply for English, ESL, and Chemistry.

  • If you completed an English, ESL, Math or Chemistry Class within the past three years, you DO NOT qualify to retest in each perspective discipline.
