Placement testing for admission to Gaston College is administered by the Testing Center. The Testing Center administers RISE for most new students. Students who may be uncomfortable with a computerized test may contact the Testing Coordinator for information on a written placement test. The RISE provides the College with an assessment of a student’s skills in Writing, Reading, and Mathematics/Algebra.
