Make an Appointment


In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are offering online placement testing. You may choose to complete your placement online with an online proctoring service or test with a Heartland staff member through Zoom. Some paper-based placement tests may not be available. 

Heartland Community College has developed phased COVID-19 recovery transition operations in accordance with guidance from the Illinois Office of the Governor. With the rapid spread of Covid-19 cases in our region, the College is taking measures to keep students, employees, and our community, as safe as possible.
