Testing Center - Manassas

  • Students sitting in class

One of the first offices most students interact with at the Manassas Campus is the Testing Center, which handles placement tests. The results of placement tests determine the math, English and other classes a student is eligible to take.

The Testing Center is also the last office many students have contact with before leaving NOVA to pursue higher education or careers.  

Special hours may be posted for holidays, semester breaks and summer sessions. Check the Testing Center Hours, as they often change.


Hours are subject to change for holidays, semester breaks, inclement weather and other circumstances. Please check the calendar link for the most up to date hours. Call 703.257.6645 for more information.

Tests are only available during the following times during regular hours of operation:
