If you have taken a placement test at another institution within the last three years, you may bring a copy of your placement results to the Testing and Tutoring Center for translation. Translation of placement scores are done by the Testing and Tutoring Center Specialist and take one business day to translate. Please be aware that not all placement results translate to Napa Valley College courses, therefore a placement test may still be required.
