Placement Questions

COCA offers a placement class opportunity during which you can try a class before registering. Simply visit the front desk or the Registration Office prior to the class to pick up the appropriate paperwork. After the class, the instructor will provide feedback and a recommendation for class registration. Placement classes are available the first three weeks of each semester, and tuition is not pro-rated if you register for the full class. A spot can only be guaranteed if you are registered for the class.
