Helena College is practicing all of the CDC recommendations for safe working.  As always, if you are showing any signs of illness, have traveled to an area of unknown risk in the past 14 days, or have been around someone who is sick, you are asked to not visit campus in person.

 Helena College students with special testing circumstances will be considered on a case-by-case basis. You are encouraged to work with your instructor first, but you may be approved for special circumstances. 

As always, if you are showing any signs of illness, or have traveled to an area of unknown risk in the past 14 days, you are asked to not visit campus in person.

The Testing Center in Room DON114 has facilities to handle the administration and proctoring of such tests as ACCUPLACER, Accommodated, Make-up examinations, and other web-based and standardized testing for members of the community. There are also private testing rooms for those students with disabilities that warrant private testing accommodations (see information on Disability & Access Services).


Starting Summer 2020: Helena College will not be requiring placement test scores for students interested in classes that previously required ACT or ACCUPLACER scores.

For dual enrollment students: Helena College will work with each high school individually to ensure students are placed in the appropriate dual credit class.  Placement tests for writing will no longer be required, and any eligible dual enrollment student may take College Writing (WRIT 101) or Technical Writing (WRIT 121) going forward.  For the 2020-2021 school year, math placement will rely on factors such as high school courses completed and grades in relevant coursework.

Dual enrollment students interested in taking a math class should talk to their high school counselor or to Helena College’s Director of K-12 Partnerships, Stephanie Hunthausen, to discuss the appropriate placement.  Please see http://helenacollege.edu/admissions_enrollment/highschool.aspx for more information.
