Testing Center

The Dayton Campus Testing Center and Academic Resource Center will be closed from 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. on Friday, October 27th. Placement and academic testing will resume after 10:00 a.m.

The Dayton Campus Testing Center provides a secure and quiet testing environment for placement and academic testing. Placement and academic testing are also available at all Sinclair learning centers and Sinclair in Mason. Placement and academic tests in the Dayton Campus Testing Center are given individually on a first come, first served basis (walk-in testing). For hours of operation and scheduling guidelines by location, however, visit the Testing Hours and Locations page.

Coming to the Dayton Campus? Parking is available in Lot A, the open-access student and visitor lot. 

Placement Testing

The placement test is an untimed computerized assessment in math and/or English that Sinclair uses to ensure that you enroll in the classes that are right for you. The first placement test attempts each year, along with access to web-based remediation software, are provided by Sinclair at no cost to the student. Upon completion of the placement test, your Academic Advisor will review your scores with you and help make appropriate recommendations for course registration or review.

Academic Testing

Academic testing is available for distance learning/Sinclair Online students, students who have been approved to make up a classroom test and students requiring accommodations who are registered with Disability Services.
